Saturday 15 Dec > Rebel Up x Akuphone label night w/ Ko Shin Moon live + dahaW ⅃ꓘ@ OCCII, Amsterdam

Rebel Up Soundclash x Akuphone label night, with live sets by Amsterdam duo dahaW ⅃ꓘ and French duo Ko Shin Moon.

Imagine an outernational sound that defies borders, the meeting of ethnic folk music in underground spheres. Sound from the past brought alive into the present via the frequencies and vibrations of strings, percussion and analogue synths. The cultural counterculture against the right wing tendencies and normalities of today will not be silenced. We want you to be part of this, join our ritual as we dance the night away to beautiful songs and hidden gems from around the world.

Earlier in the day we will play a live session at Red Light Radio from 17-18h.

 dahaW ⅃ꓘ (GR/SYR) *live*
Somewhere was the beginning/Somehow will be the end/Everything is chaos/All is ONE “KL wahad” (Oud/folk guitar). In their first ever concert, they will explore the possibilities of the endless improvisation between borders and freedom.
 
Ko Shin Moon (FR) *live*
Paris duo Axel Moon and Niko Shin blur temporal and geographical boundaries. As Ko Shin Moon they mix acoustic instruments from different regions of the world though analogue machines, traditional instruments, electronic sampling and field recordings, taking the stage with a Saz and heaps of analogic synths. The first album of the band is a bodily trip through hybrid territories, fantasy soundscapes and colorful collages: from Oriental Europe to Northern Africa, Middle East or Southeast Asia and beyond. Reversing analogical listening in digital synthesis, as music for imaginary traveling in dancefloor trance. After numerous summer festivals allover Europe and Morocco, they have just returned from a residency in Caïro, Egypt and played at Trans Musicales Rennes Festival.
 
DJ Cheb Gero (Akuphone label / FR)
Genuine music lover and chronic collector, Cheb Gero has cleared up and digged into musical worlds ever since his teens. In 2015, He launched outernational label Akuphone in an “archiving” spirit, drawn by a desire to “explore the world through music”. Far from supporting a romantic or fetishist vision of extra-Western music, the label aims at linking these productions to their historical and political contexts, placing them back in the social and cultural conditions in which they emerged. He hosts the radio shows Decolonize Ur Mind and Radio Gero, as well as Parisian Northern African music nights such as Belleville Habibi. Check out his live cassette mix >

Ko Shin Moon

* Analog synthesizers, drum Machines & Oriental lutes *
Mixing instrumental and digital compositions, contemporary electronic sounds, traditional music and samples from field recordings, Ko Shin Moon blurs all the boundaries. Soundtrack of a patchwork crossing, the first LP of the group, released on the label Akuphone, transports the listener to hybrid territories, fantasy soundscapes and colorful collages. The time of a break, reversing analogical listening in digital synthesis, this funny duo turns the listener into a dancer on an Algerian acid, an electric belly dance, the Greek psyche, the Turkish disco, the Lebanese trap , Thai dance or Lao shoegaze.

Samcha (L’Oreille Percée)
Samcha aka L’Oreille Percée collects, collects and, as far as possible, informs the musical media of Thailand, Indonesia, Japan or the Chinese diaspora with a singular detour for Cote d’Ivoire. Ethnologist in partnership with Khun Narin Sin Phin Prayuk during his extra-Asian excursions, this Pierced Ear seeks to trace an itinerary for the ear which, beyond the West, probes music publishing around the world. Listening to what others are listening to, without prejudging what they love, who they are, here is a program that it becomes, today more than ever, possible to achieve.

Cheb Gero
Passionate about music and incorrigible collector, Cheb Gero, clears and digs the musical worlds. In 2015, in an “archive” spirit and driven by a desire to “explore the world in music”, he launched Akuphone. In an approach related to musical archeology, he seeks to highlight the work of artists, musicians, singers and singers who, in the so-called Western countries, are unknown or have fallen into the oversight. Far from a romantic or fetishistic vision of non-Western music, the goal of the label is to articulate these cultural productions to their historical and political context and to restore them in their social and cultural conditions of appearance.

Rebel Up SebCat
