Sat 31 Oct > Rebel Up! @ Café Quartier XXL Tuareg rock night, VK, Molenbeek w/ Terakaft & Mdou Moctar

dear Brussels lovers of desert blues!
This saturday a nice double concert by Tuareg bands Terakaft & Mdou Moctar!

12015097_933056410102814_9192639241464048125_oMolenbeek! A cultural and artistic melting pot, a young and dynamic neighborhood filled with action and movement. Café Quartier is a meeting place where a stage is presented to (young) talent, ideas and initiatives.

Café Quartier XXL is a new concept: an expansion of the profile of the VK. Its main idea is to offer a true cross-over, in music, on stage and in the crowd. The bands on the stage will provide a mix between underground and Maghrebi music and will offer an experience which represents the spirit of Molenbeek!

terakaftTERAKAFT (ML)
Hailing from Mali the Tuareg band Terakaft (meaning “The Caravan”) are regarded as the pioneers of desert rock. No other band from the desert is closer to Tinariwen than Terakaft.
‘Alone’ is the fifth album of Terakaft. Recorded partly at the famous Real World Studios, the album was produced by Justin Adams, the British musician/ producer who has delved deep into Tuareg music, and is known through his work with Robert Plant, Tinariwen and Juldeh Camara. In these troubled times, they have made an album together, that presents the deep Saharan rhythms as a vital contemporary heartbeat. Standing on the ruins of their people’s dreams they sing to their brothers and sisters about true friendship and tolerance.

In the somewhat crowded scene of Tuareg guitarists, Mdou stands apart from his peers. One of the few original singer/songwriters willing to experiment and push the boundaries of the genre, his unconventional styles have won him accolades both in Niger and abroad. Mdou Moctar hails from Abalak, in the Azawagh desert of Niger.
In 2013, he released his first international album, “Afelane”, rocking and raw sessions recorded live at his hometown in Niger and earlier this year his fictional biography movie “Akounak Tedalat Taha Tazoughai”, an amazing rockfilm in the Tamasheq language.
