Sat 23 March: Rebel Up SebCat @ La Fete du Printemps w/ Cipriano’s Banda & Riso Patate’n Folk (IT), Les Ecuries van de Tram, Bxl

The 2nd edition of La Fete du Printemps, organised by Italian expat Brussels group Riso Patate’n Folk. 2 live bands, Italian food & afterparty!

Afin d’accueillir le printemps comme il se doit, un groupe venant tout droit d’Italie a décidé de nous apporter un peu de soleil dans ses valises: Cipriano’s Band. Ce groupe né à Milan, propose un style de musique bien à lui. C’est l’histoire d’un monde visionnaire, amusant et irremplaçable que des personnages comme Ettore Petrolini, Rodolfo De Angelis, Fred Buscaglione, Giorgio Gaber, Piero Ciampi, Paolo Conte ont décrit dans leurs chansons. Un spectacle passionnant et authentique interprété par le chante-acteur Michele Cipriano, artiste du passé qui, avec ses auteurs-compositeurs, son swing et son ironie, surprend, divertit et anime. Le groupe est à son image et à sa ressemblance.

Au début c’était une recette, où le riz (“riso”) est impliqué dans une affaire étrange avec les pommes de terre (“patate”) et les moules (“cozze”). La scène est Bari, une terre célèbre pour sa passion pour le Peroni glacé, à consommer en grande quantité et surtout le dimanche à l’heure du déjeuner. Ensuite, le groupe Riso Patate ’n’ Folk s’est formé à Bruxelles en décembre 2010. Leur répertoire a un acteur clé en la personne du grand auteur-compositeur interprète Matteo Salvatore d’Apricena (Foggia), et s’enrichit de la musique de la Rue Kétanou, Paolo Conte, Intillimani, Gabriella Ferri, Manu Chao et de chansons de traditions espagnole et latino-américaine. De plus, Riso Patate’n ’Folk s’est récemment efforcé d’écrire des chansons originales, tant en italien que dans le dialecte de Foggia, et a renouvelé son spectacle de manière absolument originale.

Buffet from 19h – by Entre Nous, a sustainable canteen that offers recipes based on local ingredients, from the short circuit, with an Italian twist!

Sat 23 June > Festa Afro Tuga #4 *Live* w/ Africa Negra & Celeste Mariposa @ Les Ecuries van de Tram, Schaarbeek

This special summer Afro Tuga *Live* edition is a concert night with a live band all the way from Sao Tomé e Principe, Conjunto África Negra, who bring Rumba, Socopé and Semba!

Africa Negra (Sao Tomé e Principe)
For over 40 years, África Negra holds the musical scepter of Sao Tome and Príncipe, an archipelago off the west coast of Central Africa. They are extremely popular in Portuguese-speaking African countries such as Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Angola and Mozambique, even in Colombia and in the Afro Portuguese diaspora around the world! Their music was a symbol of the first years of independence in 1975. They are idolised for their inimitable line of guitar based Rumba and Socopé from Sao Tome or Congolese Soukous, with also some happy notes of Highlife from Ghana. They are back, without losing their original sound of the 70s and 80s and with most of the original lineup. If you were at their incredible and wild concert last year in Muziekpublique, you know the musical fire they will bring. Puxa pa!

CelesteMariposa (Lisboa)
Wilson Vilares aka Celeste Mariposa started out in the techno scene but the powerful music of the African ex-Portuguese colonies lured him in and he became a true connoisseur of the Luso-African music diaspora from Angola & Cabo Verde, Guinee Bissau, Sao Tomé and further. Celeste Mariposa is also a label, releasing talented Luso-African artists living in the Lisboa area such as Chalo Correia and Julinho da Concertina (both played in Bxl the last 2 years). Expect wild funana, funky coladeira, electro passada, shaking semba, rebita and much more!

Rebel Up Gato Seb (Bxl)
Brussels global crew Rebel Up! are no secret with their eclectic global nights allover town, their monthly radio show Nightshop and Kiosk Radios session. Expect some hot warming up in Luso African spheres, from vintage sounds to contemporary LX beats.

Le Grand Méchant Loop (Bxl)
Founder of the Giraffes & Penguins party, he will take us on a surprising journey, spiced up with live percussion, where the genuine sounds of ferrinho and gwoka blend to create the kind of groove that can only be explained on a dancefloor!

NGHE Soundsystem (Bxl)
a travel through Luso sounds for the opening & dinner

Special surprise live set > Electro Chouk (Haiti/Bxl)
At the very end of the night
