Wedn 9 March > Rebel Up Alive Sessions @ Bonnefooi w/ NGHE, Chien Fer, Mott Flyf & more

We have a new concert residency at Bonnefooi > Rebel Up Alive sessions.
On every second Wednesday of the month, Rebel Up will gather with alternative artists from Brussels and beyond and will make us dive into global sounds from the underground scene.

Wednesday 9 march is our first evening, where we invite the NGHE Mediatheque from Molenbeek, with live concerts by Chien Fer and Mott Flyf.

MOTT FLYF
Mott Flyf thinks singing is everywhere. In puddles, landfills, forests and stomachs. He believes that to capture it, one must be endowed with a powerful mediumistic love. So he falls in love and plays tunes and songs as the melody comes walking. His ritornellos walk, sad and full of hope, next to time and beg the sun to beat him up. Friend of the rain, he falls asleep in the mud, dark, rainbow. He sings to the sounds of zouk, bossa nova, baile funk, new wave and urban pop love songs. https://soundcloud.com/mott-flyf

DJ support by Rebel Up, Tropical DJipsies and NGHE soundsystem.

Wed 3 Dec > Ogoya Nengo & Dodo Women group in OCCII, Amsterdam!

ogoyaoccii

On wednesday 3 Dec, another great Rebel Up! concert night in OCCII, Amsterdam
with Ogoya Nengo & Dodo Women group playing!!!!

Ogoya Nengo (in drawing above) is on her 1st tour outside of Kenya. Born in the 1930s in a small village at the shores of Lake Victoria, she soon joined the socially critical Dodo singers, a genre and community which is in danger of vanishing. Ogoya became the rave of her time, singing to great chiefs, warriors and even colonial officers and missionaries. Despite Ogoya being a legendary Kenyan folk artist with a career spanning over three decades little people outside Kenya have had the chance of ever hearing her and her ensemble. Ogoya Nengo’s approach to Dodo, a genre which is in danger of vanishing, is a very personal one: Her music is characterized by her powerful, passionate and compelling voice and is as timeless as it is mystical. Obviously Ogoya is a legendary Kenyan folk artist who has had an immense career spanning over three decades, but due to limited resources her music has remained in her region, and not many outsiders did have the pleasure of hearing her yet.
Her album has just been released on the Honest Jon’s label.
