Sat 13 June > Rebel Up! SebCat @ Out Loud night, Beursschouwburg, Bxl w/ Orchestre Du Mont-Plaisant (UK/FR) &Mocambo (BR/BE)

Hello Brussels!

10990007_10153255344825782_3334741651309786676_o

This saturday a sweet night at Beursschouwburg together with kunstencenter De Vooruit from Ghent as part of the yearly Out Loud festival.
British afropunk-poppers Zun Zun Egui sadly had to cancel their show, but Rebel Up! helped arranging some fine replacements for them, 2 bands even, yay!

We´re proud to present French-British outfit Orchestre Du Mont-Plaisant and local Brussels & Ghent afro-heroes Mocambo to fill this night with their special global sounds.

Orchestre Du Mont-Plaisant specialises in all global styles with a heavy psychedelic sauce. They bring together world rhythms and moody cinematic moments playing blues and dance pieces, with notable influences from Congolese Soukous, African highlife, Ethiopian jazz, cumbia, séga and a whiff of Middle-East and Turkish Psychedelia to make your head & body spin.


Mocambo
will shake you up with their heavy Afro-Brazilian & urban Afrobeat rhythms. It´s the project by rapper Le Tagarel and composer Tartaruga and joined by our own Brussels artist Témé Tan and several other master musicians. Their strong sound takes you from Angola to Brasil in many colours and spheres. Get ready to rumble with this wild band!

Fri 16 May Rebel Up! Sebcat @ Pantropical party, WORM R’dam with Yan Koy & Color Rumba (RDC/BE)

color rumba 16mei

This coming friday 16 May, Pantropical organises a super special Congolese night in Worm are totally psyched to finally be able to host a rare LIVE show by Color Rumba! They are masters at playing classic Congolese rumba soukous from the sixties to the eighties; super infectious and dancable music! Some of their bandmembers performed with famous Congolese bands such as Franco’s Orchestre T.P.O.K. Jazz, Zaiko Langa Langa and Demba. Don’t miss out on this one!

+++++++++++++++++++

Yan Koy & COLOR RUMBA (RDC/BE)
This band’s mastery of the Congolese soukous from the 1960s to 1980s will bring you to dance! Rumba is a genre of dance music that originated from Cuban Rumba in the Belgian and French Congo during the 1940s and later garnered popularity throughout Africa, followed by the Soukous style with a more modern upbeat sound from the late 70’s onwards. Led by singer Yan Koy, Color Rumba is a band with a revolving cast of members such as luminaries Petit Poisson (guitar), Pappy Muntu (bass), Alonzo Baba (drums) and others who played in famous Congolese bands like Franco’s TPOK Jazz and Zaiko Langa Langa. In their two hour live set, Color Rumba will take you to the Congolese nirvana of tropical rock with beautifully cascading, sparkling guitar melodies, a super tight and hypnotic rhythm section and polyphonic vocals. Absolutely essential!
