This Wednesday 26 Oct, Rebel Up! @ Les Ateliers Claus to warm up / between and continue the mid week party with the alternative global bands Meridian Brothers (Colombia) and Senyawa (Indonesia). A night from Bogota to Jogjakarta!!
From Bogota, Colombia, the MERIDIAN BROTHERS are an art-combo who mix Latin American rhythms with art noise and unpredictable sonic events. Traditional instruments and computer technology all contribute to this mixture of influences from vintage tropical styles from the Colombian coastal zone, the Caribbean and Peru to electronic folk and Dolly Parton. Imagine the illegitimate offspring of a liaison between the Residents and the Penguin Cafe Orchestra and you´ll be close to the sound of the Meridian Brothers. Convincing Latin dance rhythms are overlaid with skeletal guitars and vocal tomfoolery to create a mesmerising confection of minimalism, cumbia, pop, electronica and Afro-funk. The band formed in 1998, spearheaded by leader Eblis Alvarez, and sold cassette recordings in the capital of Colombia before releasing several albums. On their latest album ‘Los Suicidas’ they once again bring their unique, funny & experimental Colombian sound to make you go round and round into sweet delirium. Check out this video. SENYAWA (ID) is an experimental band from Java, Indonesia consisting of Rully Shabara and Wukir Suryadi. The band has been formed in 2010 in Yogyakarta. The band mixes influences from musical and folklore traditions from the Indonesian archipelago with experimental music. The band neo-tribal sound has been described to mix “punk attitude” with “avant-garde aesthetics”. According to critics, Senyawa has managed to “manage to embody the aural flavours of Javanese music while exploring the framework of experimental music practice, pushing the boundaries of both traditions” to create a sound that is “thoroughly out of this world.”
Shabara provides his extended vocal techniques to Senyawa. The band’s lyrics are in various languages of Indonesia, including Sulawesian, Javanese and Bahasa Indonesia. Senyawa’s music is provided by Suryadi’s self-built musical instruments made from bamboo and traditional agricultural tools from rural Indonesia. Get your demons out! Read this great interview and this video.

Marisa Anderson (US – Portland)
All traditional American guitar styles played in virtuoso and amazing ways! A mixture of improvisation and fluid compositions, with references ranging from minimalism and drone gospel, blues, country and jazz. At nineteen, Marisa began to wander through the US to eventually settle, years later, in Portland, Oregon. Basically she followed a classical guitar training, but has created her unique own style by playing in country music groups, jazz and even the circus. In 2009 she released her first album, ‘The Golden Hour’, followed by ‘Mercury’ (2011), ‘Traditional andPublic Domain Songs’ (2013) and ‘Into the Light’ (2015). Recently she was asked to make recordings for Beth Ditto and soundtracks fro films. Let yourself be transported by this hypnotic music!
this Saturday we´ll be playing at the special FREE Koepé Dekalé festival in Sint Joost/St Josse with African contemporary, vintage and dance tunes between all the bands & groups. This festival is organised by Kuumba & commune/gemeente St Josse/Sint Joost
