The Amsterdam roots festival is about to start and this sunday there's a free world music festival in the Oosterpark. See programme of the Roots Open Air day here.
Tips: go and see all-female Russian polka-punk band Iva Nova, the rumba mestiza of Zulu 9.30, the London-infused Algerian band Fantazia and the diasporic mashup sounds from Berlin's Nomad Soundsystem.

On sunday the 24th of June, there will also be a free world music festival in the Julianapark in Utrecht. more info here.

Sundays are no lazy days in June :D

Next soundclash Friday 29th of June, with Maga Bo Live!

Hi there,

Big thanks to the handfull of wonderful people who came out on the 25th of May, despite it being a hot day and night, and still created a good atmosphere!

We will have another Rebel Up! Soundclash on Friday the 29th of June, which promises to be an even better one. Especially since we will have a special live guest: Maga Bo, all the way from Rio de Janeiro and currently touring Europe bringing his *Transnational Bass sound*!

We will again have the Igitego Inyange organization as our charity for this night, as we didn't raise much last time around due to the low turnout. So, let's give it another chance! Keep your coins, small change or bigger notes ready...any donation is a sweet gesture! See further project information in previous posts.

If you wish to send info around, you can use this bit:

Rebel Up! Soundclash (#4)

!!with live guest Maga Bo!!

Diasporic sounds from the global underground.....
a global culture mashup of rougher world music and visuals, in ways of Southern European Mestiza and Gypsy beats, old skool Roots and further roughness from Africa, Arabia & Asia. plus gritty electronics.

Please support us and forward this to your friends, family, and network buddies, through word of mouth, digitally and so on. we hope to see you there! :)
