Wed 3 Dec > Ogoya Nengo & Dodo Women group in OCCII, Amsterdam!

ogoyaoccii

On wednesday 3 Dec, another great Rebel Up! concert night in OCCII, Amsterdam
with Ogoya Nengo & Dodo Women group playing!!!!

Ogoya Nengo (in drawing above) is on her 1st tour outside of Kenya. Born in the 1930s in a small village at the shores of Lake Victoria, she soon joined the socially critical Dodo singers, a genre and community which is in danger of vanishing. Ogoya became the rave of her time, singing to great chiefs, warriors and even colonial officers and missionaries. Despite Ogoya being a legendary Kenyan folk artist with a career spanning over three decades little people outside Kenya have had the chance of ever hearing her and her ensemble. Ogoya Nengo’s approach to Dodo, a genre which is in danger of vanishing, is a very personal one: Her music is characterized by her powerful, passionate and compelling voice and is as timeless as it is mystical. Obviously Ogoya is a legendary Kenyan folk artist who has had an immense career spanning over three decades, but due to limited resources her music has remained in her region, and not many outsiders did have the pleasure of hearing her yet.
Her album has just been released on the Honest Jon’s label.

Time is Up to put on your shiniest shoes and prepare to move your legs in all kinds of directions,
On Saturday, the 4th of May Rebel Up! is back in Café De Vingerin The Hague to honor the return of the Sun (and the King, why not?) and deliver as usual our fittest sound from the global underground.
The deal is simple as usual, we ask you just a bit of money to help for one last time our friends from the Kenyan ONG Watoto Wa Baraka (more info available on  www.africanorphanage.org) and in exchange we guaranty to keep you dancing, smiling, mingling with fun people and just have a good time, like in a good friends party. It will groove for sure with Up and Down tempo from Africa, mashing guitars from Sahara, Brass bands from around the Mediterranean coasts and many rhythms from Brazil, Argentina y Columbia and the Caribbean. We’ll go crescendo to let you go in trance into heavy bass lines towards the end of our show.
Sweat promises…

Flyer_RU_22_02

Hi Up there,
Rebel Up! is going to soundclash again on Friday 22nd of February at De Vinger in Den Haag.
The idea is as usual  to deliver a musical trip through time and space, to let you wander in all continents with a ricochet on some islands. We intend to provide you with a good time in an open and friendly atmosphere. All that with a slice of consciousness involved with all benefits at the entrance dedicated for a great association called Watoto Wa Baraka. They are actually working hard on developing care centers and orphanages in rural Kenya  (more info available on  www.africanorphanage.org).
As for musical matters, our DJ crew will be made out of 3 identities, ready and willing to clash along for your pleasure. SebCat, Palm M & DuckFood are bringing their music boxes from Rotterdam, Brussels and Den Haag. Our soundscape will mostly cross through African rough club rhythms and intricate roots, up to South American and Caribbean old and new dancefloor scenes. Surprises will come from the Middle East also. Mostly looking for rarities plus unexpected mixes and mashups, for one purpose only, put a smile in your face, close your eyes and let your body go with the flow.
Brave the cold and bring the heat!
See you then soon,
Rebel Up! Crew
