After last year’s fun, Rebel Up & Friends are coming back at Saintklet summer outdoor terrace on the Bxl canalside! with a great international lineup of special guests DJ Cami Layé Okún, Edna Martinez & Fresh Nunas, hosted by SebCat.

Cami Layé Okún (Havana, Cuba)
Cuban DJ/selector who collects vinyl records from allover the world as a way of sharing stories through music with similar organic roots. Her sound spans from the tropical to the tribal; think African and Caribbean rhythms mixed with a Latin soul and sensibility, engaging audiences and dancefloors with Cuban disco, Afro-Caribbean rarities and tropical Amazonian funky grooves. Currently based in Havana, she is so far the only local DJ that produces and promotes events in a 100% vinyl format. Since 2020 Cami hosts her own monthly show ‘Insolar’ on London’s NTS Radio where she curated sunny music from different parts of the world.

Edna Martinez (Cartagena, Colombia / Berlin)
DJ / curator, artist and radio host from the Colombian Caribbean based in Berlin, Germany. Her musical selection is linked to her artistic research in which she explores autobiographical migratory routes with the concept of resistance as its axis. Her sound involves Afro-Caribbean organic rhythms, jazz bases, tribal polyrhythm, Arabic folklore, and more. She is the woman behind projects such as “Latinarab” a trip from Jaffa to the Arab Caribbean, and “El Volcán El Orgullo de Berlin”, the only soundsystem picó party in Germany. She also moderates monthly radio shows on Radio Alhara (Palestine), Worldwide FM (London) and Boxout.fm (India).
