We kregen het spijtige nieuws binnen dat door een auto-ongeluk in Caïro Islam Chipsy & EEK niet naar Brussel kunnen afzakken. Hun agent hierover:

 

 ‘On Monday 2 members of Islam Chipsy & EEK were involved in a car accident in Cairo which although not serious has left them with injuries that mean they will sadly be unable to perform at Bang Festival. They send their best wishes to all their fans in Brussels and hope to reschedule this performance for a later date’ 

 

Om onze BANG! Opening Night toch energiek te openen zochten we snel naar een waardige vervanger. Die vonden we bij:

 

STILL featuring DEVON + FREWEINI 

Aangekochte tickets blijven geldig voor de avond zelf, of kunnen indien gewenst terugbetaald worden door een reply op uw bevestigingsmail te versturen naar  cultuur@vub.be met vermelding van uw rekeningnummer.

 

We danken jullie voor jullie begrip!

STILL featuring DEVON + FREWEINI  (music)

Shapeshifting through vernacular worlds of sound and imagery, Milan artist and musician STILL (Simone Trabucchi)’s practice is defined by a uniquely nomadic approach.

Previously known as Dracula Lewis, a project developing his personal take on ‘folk’ music. Under this incarnation, he has released a number of records under various seminal labels. He is also one half of the visual arts duo Invernomuto and behind Hundebiss Records.

His new moniker STILL follows the unearthing of the minor histories that link his hometown to Ethiopia, and Jamaica explored under Invernomuto as an in-depth fieldwork lead to Negus: a series of sculptures, installations and a long-feature experimental documentary, screened at Unsound 2016.

Feestelijke opening van The Radical Child expo met performances en fanfare.

Festive opening of The Radical Child expo 

Métagore - Compagnie Canicule (performance / parcours)

Tijdens een autorit met rauwe rap-stemmen en barokmuziek op de achtergrond nemen twee hertoginnen ons mee naar hun verknipte universum, dat nog het meest weg heeft van een rap-clip. Door zich de codes van de rapmuziek toe te eigenen en om te keren, bevragen ze de positie van de vrouw binnen dit genre.

During a car ride amid a background of raw rap punchlines and baroque music, two duchesses take us into their quirky universe worthy of a rap music video. By appropri- ating and diverting the codes of this genre, they question the place women have in it.

-canceled -Islam Chipsy & EEK (concert) - canceled

 

EDM-pionier Islam chipsy vergezeld van twee explosieve drummers van EEK - recht uit het hart van Caïro. Met hun opgefokte electro shaabi zetten ze elke zaal in vuur en vlam. Hypersnelle melodieën in combinatie met ADHD-percussie. Wie hen eerder aan het werk zag op het Dour Festival, Vooruit of in de Recyclart, was meteen verknocht aan deze onweerstaanbare, oriëntaalse electronica. Voor fans van Omar Souleyman, Nozinja en Ninos Du Brasil

'Islam Chipsy’s performances have been the stuff of legend outside Egypt for several years now, thanks to the circulation of various still breathtaking YouTube clips of his group EEK… in unbridled hyper-kinetic flow at gigs, weddings and street parties, as well as a series of international shows spoken of evangelically by those lucky enough to have seen them… They push at boundaries of dance-based music that are widely known and understood… It is astonishing, exhilarating, inventive music by any measure' — The Wire

At the core of the group lies electro chaabi keyboard pioneer Islam Chipsy, whose joyous, freewheeling sonic blitz warps the standard oriental scale system into otherworldly shapes, as flanked by Mohamed Karam and Mahmoud Refat raining down a percussive maelstrom behind dual drum kits.
