Fri 08.10 Rebel Up @ LiNDiGo concert (La Reunion), Muziekpublique, Bxl

This friday 08.10 a special Maloya concert @ Muziekpubique by La Reunion group LiNDiGo

It has been twenty years since the group LiNDiGo, led by Olivier Araste, has been cited as one of the most popular Maloya groups. However, his approach is neither locked in nostalgia nor in the shackles of a sterile memory. Foundations serve the momentum, and roots build the future. Their motto: “When you know where you’re coming from, you know where you’re going”, their style: Maloya Power. They already have more than 1000 concerts and six albums to their credit.

On stage, their jubilant trance, as distinctive as it opens up to new horizons, contaminates all audiences. Lindigo is a love story for this dear pebble called Réunion, for its land from which rhythm springs, its sky which offers dreams and its ocean which leads to the discovery of other worlds. It is a love story for music, this maloya that unites ancestors and their grandchildren, which gives men and women the strength of pure feelings, adventure and sharing. Lindigo is generous fellowship, a celebration of life present, past and future.

Warmup & afterparty in the foyer in collaboration with Rebel Up and Drache Musicale.

Limited to 200 places, best reserve your ticket here.

Fri 02.10 new release out on Rebel Up; Kaito Winse – Kaladounia. Burkinabé griot artist solo album with modern traditions and deep spiritual ancestral sounds.

Kaito Winse comes from a Burkina Faso griot music family. From an early age he was formed in the traditions of his family in the village of Lankoué, Sourou region in the north of Burkina Faso.

As a modern jeli or griot, Kaito is the message bearer for the traditions of Burkina Faso. His solo debut album “Kaladounia” ( ‘Here the world’ / ‘ici le monde’), takes its impetus from the desire to perpetuate these traditions. The tama drum, the toutlé and the Fulani flutes and the traditional mouth bow accompany the songs addressed to Ancestors and newborns, and appeal to the force of planet earth. Traditional and spiritual techniques are renewed and unveiled on this album.

“Kaladounia” also takes its inspiration from the richness of human values ​​and the need to communicate with nature. His mouth bow leads the voice and carries uplifting messages. His voice rises in in the local Burkinabé languages of Mooré, Samo and a little bit of French and pays homage to women, to their courage, to love and to life. The songs reveal the mastery of traditional musical techniques and rhythms, a spirituality rooted in ancestral values ​of men and nature, and a powerful and striking voice you won’t forget. This is the world, this is the place to do good things while you are here.

Released on Rebel Up Records, supported by NGHE Mediatheque, Enthusiast Music and Muziekpublique.

Tomorrow saturday 03.10 Kaito Winse will play an album release show at Muziekpublique theatre with Malick Pathé Sow. For info and tickets check here.

It’s Bandcamp Friday where Bandcamp waives their fee for 24H in support of artists and labels, so please support! 🙂
