Statement by their agency:  “On Monday 2 members of Islam Chipsy & EEK were involved in a car accident in Cairo which although not serious has left them with injuries that mean they will sadly be unable to perform at Bang Festival.

◊ FANNA-FI-ALLAH
This seven-man company from Pakistan & Canada is celebrating the Pakistani qawwali tradition – an ancient form of Sufi religious music from Asia – such as Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan did in the 80s-90s. And although they have been active for 20 years, the band seems to break through this year with a wider audience.

◊ RUDRESH MAHANTHAPPA & the Indo-Pak Coalition
Pitchfork recently described his style as ‘jaw-dropping’ and called him ‘one of the finest saxophonists going’. AllMusic also lauded and titled: “One of the strongest voices of the jazz scene.” His latest album ‘Agrima’ reflects ‘the vibrant presence of Indian rhythmic and melodic elements in a charged, modern improvisational framework born of the New York jazz scene’.

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!

On 18 + 19 Nov, Ruta Mare will move to Liege for 3 days for their exposition combined with parties as well
