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.

Fri 29 March > Rebel Up Sebcat @ Rumbaristas concert, Ancienne Belgique

Rumbaristas is a crazy quartet with Spanish, French and Belgian roots. They present cheery ‘balkanorumba’ and this international explanation is included in that: ‘Rumbaristas stands for an unbalanced lively and colourful mix of Latin American flavour, with the passion of the Balkan music. A pretty senseless mix of Catalan rumba and Sicilian tarantella, spiced up with a touch of ska, folk, reggae, cumbia and even avant-garde.

DJ support from 19h onwards & after the show by Rebel Up SebCat & Miguel Menendez (Rumba Hispano Belga) in rumba sounds to southern european and latin american folk.
