Fri 1 March > Rebel Up Soundclash *Sahel special* with Studio Shap Shap (NE) & Pal/Secam @ OCCII, Amsterdam

Sounds from the Global Underground | Sahel Special

Another special Rebel Up Soundclash night in the OCCII, where we invite the band Studio Shap Shap for their only NL show this tour. Not to be missed!

Studio Shap Shap started off in 2015 as a project that was inspired by a new radio station in Niamey, which was searching for local musicians who could create 27 songs in three days for its broadcast programme. Studio Shap Shap are Oumarou Adamou (Niger), Boubacar Siddo Diallo (Niger), Seyni Halidou (Niger), Haruna Abdou (Niger), Christian Koulnodji (Chad) and Laetitia Cecile (Reunion). The six-piece ensemble is known for fusing traditional and contemporary beats, inspired by nature, the communities they live in and the band members’ musical backgrounds. Mixing nature and city, traditional and electronic techniques, spoken word and vocals magnify the traditional instruments. Ancient knowledge to rely on and beyond modernity for a true contemporary African sound. Despite the challenges, the group managed to independently release their debut album ‘Chateau I’, which was recorded outside and under a hut and with the sound of birds and city noise around them. They have grown a lot since their first album and have been busy recording new songs. This is their only show in Netherlands. Travel with them into the modern sound of the Sahel!

6 musicians in the sand, under a straw roof. It is in the open air where Studio Shap Shap recorded their live album amidst bird cries and sounds from the capital city of Niamey, Niger. Traditional instruments (douma, talking drums, kindé, molo, komsa), electronic machines, bass, and piano intertwine with their sounds.
