wed. 29 june; Rebel Up dj at Shangaan electro night @ Worm, Rotterdam (at Heidegger)


hello boys and girls!

What an amazing sunny Amsterdam roots weekender we had, hope you were there!

This wednesday we’ll continue even deeper into bizarre global territories on this very special Shangaan electro night at the good WORM in Rotterdam (not in Delfshaven anymore, but right in the centre at Heidegger venue, real close to the station!).

The South African Shangaan electro music is not your average african sound; it’s a happy electronic marimba folk style from the north-eastern Limpopo region with beats that can go up to 180 bpm. Not for faintfeeted. Producer Richard Nozinja will provide these infectuous marimba speed beats accompanied by the surreal dance moves of the Tshe Tsha Boys and the polyphonic voices of Tiyiselani and Nkata Mawewe. Sure is gonna be a good one, not be missed; only show in NL!

Before & after, our Rebel Up! dj SebCat will play South African sounds with Brussels friends Darcyr & LeBlanc (Tupolev/Brussels Up) and Max Le Daron. Hear this fresh Shangaan mix by Darcyr & LeBlanc, just uploaded!

and see here some Tshe Tsha Boys moves, get practising yo! 🙂
