Tuesday 17 oct > Rebel Up dj support @ TisDass concert, Brasserie de la Mule

This tuesday at Brasserie de la Mule (Schaarbeek), concert of Tamasheq desert rock group TisDass from Niger, presenting their new album Houmaïssa, (listen here).

Tisdass is the band of singer-guitarist Moussa Kildjate Albadé. Based in Niamey and originally from Tchintabaraden, an emblematic town of the kel tamasheq of Niger. Growing up to the sounds of Tinariwen, Bob Marley and Dire Strait that his father listened to, the desire to fight with words and guitars came after a trauma. As a child, he saw his country’s army kill part of his family, even though they sang of the freedom of a people and the hope of better days for an ancient culture. He understands that weapons only cause misfortune and like the pioneers of Tuareg blues, he learns the guitar and writes songs in order to make peace and independence possible for his people.

Listen here to their older album Yamedan on Sahel Sounds and their previous 2019 album Amanar via Spotify.

DJ support by Rebel Up SebCat

Sat 23 March: Rebel Up SebCat @ La Fete du Printemps w/ Cipriano’s Banda & Riso Patate’n Folk (IT), Les Ecuries van de Tram, Bxl

The 2nd edition of La Fete du Printemps, organised by Italian expat Brussels group Riso Patate’n Folk. 2 live bands, Italian food & afterparty!

Afin d’accueillir le printemps comme il se doit, un groupe venant tout droit d’Italie a décidé de nous apporter un peu de soleil dans ses valises: Cipriano’s Band. Ce groupe né à Milan, propose un style de musique bien à lui. C’est l’histoire d’un monde visionnaire, amusant et irremplaçable que des personnages comme Ettore Petrolini, Rodolfo De Angelis, Fred Buscaglione, Giorgio Gaber, Piero Ciampi, Paolo Conte ont décrit dans leurs chansons. Un spectacle passionnant et authentique interprété par le chante-acteur Michele Cipriano, artiste du passé qui, avec ses auteurs-compositeurs, son swing et son ironie, surprend, divertit et anime. Le groupe est à son image et à sa ressemblance.

Au début c’était une recette, où le riz (“riso”) est impliqué dans une affaire étrange avec les pommes de terre (“patate”) et les moules (“cozze”). La scène est Bari, une terre célèbre pour sa passion pour le Peroni glacé, à consommer en grande quantité et surtout le dimanche à l’heure du déjeuner. Ensuite, le groupe Riso Patate ’n’ Folk s’est formé à Bruxelles en décembre 2010. Leur répertoire a un acteur clé en la personne du grand auteur-compositeur interprète Matteo Salvatore d’Apricena (Foggia), et s’enrichit de la musique de la Rue Kétanou, Paolo Conte, Intillimani, Gabriella Ferri, Manu Chao et de chansons de traditions espagnole et latino-américaine. De plus, Riso Patate’n ’Folk s’est récemment efforcé d’écrire des chansons originales, tant en italien que dans le dialecte de Foggia, et a renouvelé son spectacle de manière absolument originale.

Buffet from 19h – by Entre Nous, a sustainable canteen that offers recipes based on local ingredients, from the short circuit, with an Italian twist!
