This thursday 30 june, Rebel Up! will be playing once again at Amsterdam Roots Festival, this time at the grand Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ. *A remix of modern en traditional music from Marrakech* is the theme of the night, hosted by Rest Is Noise, What Design Can Do & Rebel Up! as part of the Amsterdam Roots festival, with special international Moroccan guests Officerfishdumplings and Dakka Chrafoo. Much to look forward to!
Behind the pseudonym officerfishdumplings is the Moroccan-American musician, DJ and multimedia artist Hatim Belyamani. He is the founder of remix <- -> culture, an art collective that connects traditional music to digital remix art. Officerfishdumplings is the musical expression of this collective and what Belyamani does is quite original. In search of his property and the Moroccan musical roots he regularly travels to Morocco to record local groups. With this raw material he creates his amazing audio visual remixes.
The Dutch-Moroccan percussion group Dakka Chrafoo plays traditional music from Marrakech. They play Dakka Marrakchia: a popular music with lots of upbeat percussion, punishment clapping and piercing wind.
The DJs of RebelUp! will frame the musical evening with catchy pearls from the ‘rougher sounds from the global underground.
