Pantropical proudly presents Combo Chimbita‘s exclusive NL show during their first European tour. The New York-based Colombian band transforms Afro-Latin rhythms into melodic witchcraft, stripping away wordly façades into something bare and beautiful, like time travel through the lush tropics of yore. This is the stuff of goosebumps that you can also dance to. We’re also delighted to have DJ / producer Tayhana, who established herself as one of the most powerful musical forces on the South and Central American dancefloors.

✹ COMBO CHIMBITA (CO/US) | Names You Can Trust, Anti Records)
Visionary quartet Combo Chimbita combine folkloric mystique, otherworldly psychedelia and a dash of punk attitude. Their latest release ‘Ahomale’ captures all that is essential about them: through Carolina Oliveros’ mesmeric singing the powerhouse drumming, hypnotic synths and expressive guitar and bass playing, the band fuse the perennial rhythms of the Afro-Latin diaspora with a modern-day consciousness, while tracing the prophetic traditions of their ancestry. Oliveros: “Ahomale resurges from the visions that we’ve been having via our music and life, and the lyrics reflect a manifestation passed on through our ancestors and the gods”.

✹ TAYHANA (AR | NAAFI, Hiedrah Club de Baile)
Based in Mexico City, Tayhana is a maverick DJ and producer from Argentina who has established herself in the global club scene with her whirlwind selection of Latin American and global beats. She has a fearless mixing style that comprises a variety of contemporary crossovers. In 2013, Tayhana co-founded Hiedrah Club de Baile; a party series that pushes the experimental edge of Buenos Aires’ underground. Tayhana also collaborated with the Salviatek label in Uruguay and NAAFI in Mexico.

Sunday 27.10: rebel Up SebCat warmup for Tinariwen, Het Depot, Leuven

This sunday 27 october,
Rebel Up SebCat dj warmup & afterparty support in Tamashek / Sahara and Sahel selections at the concert of iconic desert rock band Tinariwen in Het Depot, Leuven.

Tinariwen is a group of Malian Tamashek musicians, who were formed in the early 1980s in a Libyan refugee camp. Their hypnotic desert blues is just as unpleasant as it is enchanting. Expelled from their nomadic existence, they sing about political awareness, oppression and freedom.

In 2002 Tinariwen put the African desert rock on the (world) map with the album ‘The Radio Tisdas Sessions’. Since then, members of Tinariwen have released eight more albums, played at festivals such as Glastonbury, Coachella and Roskilde, and have won multiple awards, including a Grammy for Best World Music Album.

in the new venue with the renovated rooms and big pavé courtyard. food, music, drinks and more.

This friday a real special night with 2 live concerts between punk jazz, psyche folk and many other outernational sounds. and a Rebel Up dj set before, between & afterparty.

Echoes Of Zoo (BE)
Belgian jazz cat quartet with a animalistic punk jazz sound. Spearheaded by Nathan Daems (Black Flower), Falk Schrauwen, Bart Vervaeck and Lieven van Pée. Sometimes beastly violent, then again erudite & delicate. The generosity of the band works radically contagious on audiences. With echoes from the Balkans, the middle east but just as much from the nervous urban context. In other words, our village fanfare, which is an ode to the hybridity of Molenbeek. Listen here.

Cyril Cyril (CH)
Ancestral sounds from the underbelly of psychedelic folk. The duo Cyril Cyril (of La Tene / Bongo Joe Records) produces sounds that make you long for a nomadic existence in unknown mountains. Armed with a banjo, guitar, drum kit and prophetic words, they take us like a phoenix to the dance floor. Listen to their album here.

Rebel Up will mix up raw punk with spiritual jazz to outernational psychedelic beauties and ethnic folklore.

Sun 21 May > Rebel Up! @ Ancienne Belgique, Latin Day w/ Systema Solar (CO), La Chiva Gantiva (CO/Bxl), Orkesta Mendoza (MX) and La Negra Albina (ES/Bxl)

This sunday @ Ancienne Belgique > cumbia, mambo, rocknroll, countrytwang, champeta, etceterarara

SYSTEMA SOLAR is a crazy Colombian collective ‘from near the Caribbean’ and you might already know them from other nights & festivals? Apparently they will be bringing ‘berbenautika’ and that is then a cross between the champeta ‘pikos’ soundsystems and the ‘verbena’ parties!? Or, as they say: ‘Whatever. Party!’

LA CHIVA GANTIVA is also of Colombian origin but is known to dancing music-lovers as international, diverse, from Brussels, and even as ‘neighbour to AB’. In 2017, they finally release a 3rd album. We’re happy to repeat it too: with their extra tambore, alegre, llamador and maracones they are sure to get you back on the champeta, chirimia and mapalé!

ORKESTA MENDOZA gathers in Tucson, Arizona, and is linked to Calexico via their frontman Sergio Mendoza. Here is a phenomenally infectious mix of texmex, cumbia, mambo, merengue, ranchero, rock‘n’roll, country-twang, psychedelica & Perez Prado… The whole hot hog, wittily played with class, passion, and pleasure (and released on the brilliant Glitterbeat label!)

LA NEGRA ALBINA, our friend Paula Leon lead this group: as homebase Brussels – on the street or in parks if need be – but most definitely with Latin or Hispanic or South America roots, and what they present is quite simply extra-territorially enjoyable.
