ONE LOVE

One Love
WhenFriday 13 March 2020
LocationKUUMBA ( Waverse Steenweg 78 )
PriceFree entrance

Is there a connection between taking a stand and rap? When social issues touch us deeply but nobody really talks about them, some artists use music to fill the silence.

Abou Mehdi, alias the black panther, has decided to offer you a series of evenings under the label "One Love" where for each of them a sub-theme will be defended. These composed evenings will oscillate between concerts and speeches. 
For this first evening in the heart of Matongé, the initiator of the project has decided to ask the question: My neighbourhood, safe? 

CONCERTS: 
PSHA - RATPI - BOOS'LO - LA PUISSANCE - R.MAKI.X - ZERKO - DALSIM - DMP - DARK ALLIANCE - THE BLACK PANTHER
Hosted by YAMS

This duo consisting of Yannis Landrin and Stephen Scharmin will take you to more famous regions, but also to the far corners of the American Continent.  This power line-up presents you Cumbia, Son and pop music from the 70's from our southern neighbours. All this but with a strong wink to Rio, Havana and Baranquilla.
