Dona Onete, queen of the carimbó!
Eighty-year-old Dona Onete, the great singer of the Amazon culture, shows with her new album Rebujo that quality is not an age. While the Brazilian government is turning its back on the minorities in Brazil, Onete embraces diversity – especially in its state of Pará – which, in its opinion, is “the most diverse in Brazil with its mix of colors, rhythms and tastes”. Dona Onete, a former teacher, political activist for indigenous cultures and culture minister, started her music career ten years after she had officially “retired”. She first encouraged people with her challenging texts.
At her concerts she wraps everyone up with carimbós, dance music with a strong African groove, and bangues, dancing with a ska-like rhythm; supplemented with cumbia, brega and samba.
warmup & afterparty support by Rebel Up SebCat & Drache Musicale.
and during, a dance demonstration by Patricia Tambeur.

Join us for a Rebel Up Records saturday at APERODROOM SEE U from 2pm. Relaxing time around our guinguette & food trucks. Album release party of “Awakening Spirits” by Tropikal Camel.
Tropikal Camel (IS / Berlin Arabstazy)
Special guest is Tropikal Camel who will live present his new album “Awakening Spirits”, released just before summer on Brussels label Rebel Up Records. The new urban sound of Middle Eastern/North African futurism, an original fusion between traditional Arabic music with cutting edge electronic sounds. It is a quest for a new identity, one which has been released by colonialist thinking. One that has respect to the past but with heads up to the future, urban but tribal, dramatic but minimal, full of contradictions but keeping the balance. Electronic music that has a meaning and a story.
Interview + mixtape on Tsugi blog (in French) > http://tiny.cc/qq72bz
“Awakening Spirits” will be on sale during the event as normal & colour vinyl edition (15/20€), cassette (8€) and digital download codes (5€), CHOICE!
Tropical DJipsies (Brussels)
They united their feminine forces just before the International Women’s Rights Day. This mysterious female quartet has members from various countries and are part of the Brussels global underground attached to local crews like Giraffes & Penguins, Rebel Up and MEDEX. Global dancefloor sounds from all corners of the world, from feminist to activist songs and just pure global beat bangers, attached to their own southern roots and backgrounds as well as sounds from other continents.
Rafael Aragon (Tropikal Masala / Global Hybrid Records, Brussels)
Tropikal Masala’s co-founder and resident, member of the Global Hybrid collective, nomadic dj, skilled producer, superb remixer and avid globe-trotter Rafael Aragon provides a wide range of global electronic sounds, an avalanche of sweaty psychotropical waves, voodoo percussions and trippy oriental house stompers.

Then in the night @ Bonnefooi
1st Tropikal Masala party, hosted by Rafael Aragon.
with special guest DJ Anacaona and Rebel Up SebCat support.
The infamous party Tropikal Masala, which has been shaking Paris underground nightlife a few years back, bringing together the then emerging Cumbia / Tropical scene with relatively unknown musical genres from the “Orient”, punjabi Bhangra, middle-eastern Dabke or north-african Chaabi and Amazigh sounds…
Hailing from the early venezuelian rave scene, dj and tattoo artist ANACAONA brings you the fire from the Carribean with her top-notch vinyl selection. Expect rare gems from the Afro-cuban traditions, Guaguanco, Boogaloo, Son, Guaracha, as well as the most obscure psychedelia from latinamerican 60’s, 70’s & 80’s. Deep-rooted Orishas invocations meet bizarre, early electronic music experiments and some new-wave and acid bursts. Resident of the Fania Brava party in Berlin, this discrete & experimented music lover and selecta has made quite an impression at this year’s Fusion Festival, with two amazing sets at some of the festival’s legendary stages.
23 – 6h @ Bonnefooi
