Mon 6 May > Rebel Up Soundclash w/ Ahmedou Ahmed Lowla duo (Sahel Sounds) @ OCCII, Amsterdam + live session at Red Light Radio + Tue 7 May @ Pantropical, WORM, Rotterdam

This monday evening at OCCII Amsterdam, special concert by Mauritanian duo Ahmedou Ahmed Lowla from Sahel Sounds!

First up, from 16 to 17h we will do a Rebel Up x Sahel Sounds livestream session at Red Light Radio, tune in online and see/hear it all.

In the evening at the OCCII, synth freakout from the Sahara. Mauritanian WZN (literally “instrumental music”) has emerged as pop music, blaring out of taxi cabs and cassette shops throughout the country. Ahmed Lowla is one of the country’s biggest stars. Performing in lavish weddings of Nouakchott with a troupe of percussionists, Ahmed’s signature style is dynamic and ambitious, shredding over the keys with flourishes (like playing with his elbows and head!). Hypnotic and tranced out, Ahmed Lowla transports Mauritanian classical music into technological futures, like a drug-free baroque rave under the open air of the Sahara.

Listen to the the new album ‘Terrouzi’ here – released by Sahel Sounds in time of the tour and some video’s
