Rebel Up SebCat’s Afro Tuga ‘Hand of Timba’ mixtape

This mixtape was made by Rebel Up SebCat for Celeste Mariposa‘s radio show Radio Balanço in Lisboa (Vodafone FM) during the April lockdown, as the Festa Afro Tuga party on 10 April in Recyclart got cancelled due to the obvious. The mix is mostly filled with music from the past & present of the Afro Portuguese PALOP scene but not exclusively, with tunes from other African countries and the wider African diaspora included as well, from semba to afrohouse, kuduro, funana and more. Tracklisting can be found in the mixtape comments.

The image used is of the Hand of Timba monument at the Pidjiguiti docks in Porto de Bissau, Guiné-Bissau. The Pidjiguiti massacre was a dock worker strike that took place on 3 August 1959 in which the Portuguese colonial authorities killed about 50 people and put the blame on revolutionary party PAIGC (Partido Africano para a Independência da Guiné e Cabo Verde). 3 August is now a public day of remembrance in Guinea-Bissau. Near the docks, a large black fist known as the Hand of Timba was erected as a memorial to those killed.

The current political situation in Guiné-Bissau far from good, with President Umaro Sissoco Embalo having taken power via a military coup earlier this year just before the COVID-19 crisis. Soldiers loyal to Embalo took control of national radio and public television buildings, and several public buildings including the government palace and the Palace of Justice to impose their power and ushering a new era of censorship and political oppression.

new Rebel Up Nightshop online (April) > #71 Quarantine show with 10 albums of the month!

This month’s Rebel Up Nightshop show (April 2020, via Radio Campus Bruxelles) is done in quarantine, home recorded as a big 2 hour mixtape with 10(!) albums of the month. Look out for some current candid COVID19 spoken word soundbites throughout the show as awareness or social political counteraction.

Starting with a psychedelic oriental tune by Baharat on Batov Records and followed by the new Ethiofunk-meets-dub album ‘Yene Mircha’ by Hailu Mergia on Awesome Tapes From Africa. After this, Argentinian outsider band Los Siquicos Literalenos and their experimental chamame folk sound out on Hive Mind Records and followed by the reissue of Peruvian Amazonian cumbia band Ranil Y Su Conjunto on Analog Africa, rare recordings from the 1970’s. We travel to Turkey via German Turkish migrant communities on the Uzelli Electro Saz compilation with psychedelic folk from 70’s & 80’s and followed by contemporary northern Greek folk music album by Evritiki Zygia on Teranga Beat label. Then we travel to Morocco, to the Master Musicians of Jajouka & Bachir Attar reissue on vinyl by Zehra label from a 1991 recording and we travel up into the Iberian peninsula for the compilation Codex Futura Vol.1 on Samain Music digital label with contemporary electronic folk music from Spain & Portugal. El Buho brings his new electronic latino album ‘Ramas’ on Wonderwheel label and we end the show in oriental electronic rave sounds via French duo Ko Shin Moon (‘Leila Nova’) on Akuphone and Palestinian duo Zenobia (‘Halak Halak’) on Crammed Discs.
