While we typically share their monthly podcasts and the releases from their label, today we’re teaming up with our Brussels-based friends at Rebel Up! to support and spread the word about their initiative!
For the next two weeks, in response to the devastating earthquakes in the High Atlas region of Morocco, they will be running a fundraising relief campaign.
During this period, all proceeds from digital purchases of the releases listed below will be directed towards the NGO Karama Solidarity.
“Karama”, which translates to ‘dignity’ in Arabic, is an NGO led by Moroccan citizens and Brussels-based volunteers, actively engaged in providing assistance to those affected in Morocco and the regions that have been most severely impacted.
For more information and to support the Fundraiser Relief Action, please follow this LINK.
The 3 releases where the digital proceeds will be donated to Karama >>>
• Cheb Runner – Tagnawit
The electronic gnawa EP by Moroccan producer Cheb Runner from Agadir with the Brussels gnawa maalem masters Driss Filali and Hicham Bilali.
Last week, Rebel Up! found 10 last vinyl copies of Tagnawit tucked away in their stock. Better be quick to order as these are really the last vinyls! Also they lowered the price for the digital EP to 3€, but paying more is very much appreciated for this fundraiser action – https://chebrunner.bandcamp.com/album/tagnawit-ep
• The Marockin Brass project by Luc Mishalle
With Moroccan, Benin and Brussels musician focusing on gnawa and jazz. Rebel Up! lowered the price of the digital album to 4€, paying more is again very much appreciated.
