Fri 13 Dec: Rebel Up @ Giraffes & Penguins, KulturA, Liege

Oh yes, time again for a Giraffes & Penguins weekender in Liege + Brussels.

Starting on friday the 13th (woohoo!) in Liege at the amazing KulturA club.
Arab Bass night with special guest Ghoula from Tunisia and Liege guest Cedric Blavier. hosted by Rebel Up, Le Grand Mechant Loop & Tropical DJipsies.

We’ll dive together into the infinite richness of arab music and its evolution from traditional forms to the most contemporary and wild electronic sounds.

Ghoula (TN/FR)
Ghoula is a tunisian self-made musician and producer. In Tunisia, music has been a generational vehicle for popular symbols, images and myths. Despite its small size, Ghoula sees his native country as a north African crossroad where legacies came to settle. As a producer and multi-instrumentalist, Ghoula creates genre-defying sets through both acoustics and samples. Obsessed with North African multimedia heritage, Ghoula has been digging up vinyls from flea markets and old Tunisian medinas, bringing back vestiges of forgotten music cooked on top of contemporary upbeat dance rhythms. His album Hlib el Ghoula was released on the Shouka label and he is now preparing his second album.

Cédric Blavier (Liege)
A music lover, digger and dj, Cédric Blavier makes his weapons in his native Belgium, between Liège and Brussels. Amateur of ultra-dancing ethnic music as well as planing electro downtempo, he succeeds in surprising sets to combine the effective and the experimental, the organic and the synthetic, the modern and the traditional. His musical synthesis meets a growing success in the world of electronic music, with notably appearances noticed in the festivals Nuits Sonores, Chateau Perché (France) or Taka Tuka (Hungary)!

Thu + Fri + Sat > Arte Chicha de Ruta Mare, Peru @ Recyclart, Bxl + Pakebo, Liege

hola todas!
DOSSIER BELGICAthis week, 3 special Peruvian events in Brussels & Liege
For the first time in Belgium > street art collective Ruta Mare will showcase their art between 17 and 20 november!

Yefferson and Kelly form Ruta Mare, a duo that embodies an exemplary renewal of the Peruvian Chicha culture. Created in 2012, around their common passion for the popular culture of the streets of Lima, Ruta Mare develops artistic works that implement the reminiscences of a collective Peruvian imagination. By creating gigantic mural frescos or serigraphs, they readily mix popular imagery and traditional motifs in favour of a resolutely urban and committed aesthetic.

Yefferson and Kelly are particularly aware of the graphic identity they convey and claim without any complexity their belonging to the Chicha culture, notably through a fabulous typographic work. Ruta Mare brings graphic design in urban space in their own original way and always taking the art of Chicha back to its roots: art of the people for the people.

On Thrusday 17 nov in Brussels @ Recyclart with an expo + projection & talk at the Licky My Typo night. Make sure you reserve or come on time, as it will sell out!
