Benefit for Gato Encerrado Collective in Uruguay. Music with Almudena y Davide

20170220_Benefit_Gato_Encerrado_Collective_UruguayMonday February 20th 2017, Gato Encerrado Benefit. Show with Almudena y Davide. Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm. Music from 9pm.

Benefit for Gato Encerrado Collective in Uruguay: Gato Encerrado is a collective house placed in one of the historic neighborhoods of Montevideo. Already for many years it has built itself as a place for exchange and interaction, growth and mutual help between countless amounts of people and collectives. Gato Encerrado means “trapped cat” and the phrase belongs to a popular speech meaning something dubious going on.

Here, in our home, all kinds of activities take place, from DIY health care, anarchist book fairs, concerts, art expositions to preparation meetings for demonstrations. All the activities are completely for free and with no security at the entrance, putting a focus to collective self-regulation in every situation.

It might be for this reason that at home people who sleep in the street meet European students following Masters in Uruguay. And probably for that as well our relationship with the neighborhood – of popular tradition and of resistance of the Afro community- is real, is true and between equals. We are part of our neighborhood and we collaborate each and every time a neighbor wants to connect illegally to electricity or looks for help to squat an empty house.

We have been able to supply space and collaborate with benefits of all sorts, form supporting the anarchist library of Cerro to the alternative documentary festival Globale, through raising money for jailed anarchists in different states, but also for cancer treatments of individuals, community radio stations or several squatted houses.

Music with Almudena y Davide (voice and guitar), revolutionary and popular folk songs from Spain and Latin America. https://soundcloud.com/almudena-y-davide https://almudenarubio.bandcamp.com/ […Lees verder]

The idea is to have musicians from different countries joining me when i play in different countries. Right now i’m in Amsterdam, and have my second show here next week with Pit Hermans a multi instrumentalist from Amsterdam. I’ve got a show in Prague supporting Mark Steiner a great eclectic songwriter based out of Norway in early September, and will be on tour from the middle of November for two weeks with shows tba, touring with Pavel Cingl a violinist and producer from Prague. Some other guests will join as we get closer to the tour like Tim Postage – guitarist & banjo. We’ll be back in Toronto and parts of Ontario for a couple of weeks in December for some full on Lipliners stuff as well. From there we will have to see what happens.

Benefit for the Refugees Squats in Athens. Music with “Rebet guitar +S”

Thursday November 17th 2016, Benefit for the Refugees Squats in Athens. Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm. Music with “Rebet guitar +S”, Jaap Faber and Charis Konstantinou, from 9pm.

Οn 17th of November we hold a benefit for City Plaza and Notara26 squats in Athens. Theses squats have been created in the past couple of years to accommodate refugees and immigrants coming in Athens from Turkey. They are a place where refugees can sleep, eat and socialize without any money needed. The squats are managed by refugees and greeks alike in weekly assemblies.
The City Plaza Refugee squat is the biggest in Athens, in the multicultural area of Acharnon, and started in May 2016. It used to be a hotel closed for almost 10 years. Now it permanently houses more than 300 people from 7 countries. It also offers food three times every day, childcare and medical care. City Plaza Squat also participates in the struggle against racism by organizing rallies and demonstrations. Read more here: http://solidarity2refugees.gr/english/

Notara26 is the first refugee squat in Athens, in Exarcheia, and started in September 2015. At first it was used for temporarily hosting refugee who traveled to Northern Europe. Since the Balkan route closed Notara26 houses permanently more than 100 people from different countries. Food is brought in the squat by cooking collectives and it has also been a gathering place for clothes, medicines and toys. The Notara26 squat was attacked in August 2016 by fascists and as a result it was partly burnt. The squat was very quickly rebuilt and a big antifa demonstration took place is respond to the attack. The Notara26 squat participates in the anti-racist, antifa movement with various demonstrations and events.

“Rebet guitar+S”
Rebetiko, the music crossroad between middle east and west from the early 1900’s. Songs about love, joy and sorrow.
 A musical sub-culture, a music of the lower classes.
“The womb of rebetiko was the jail and the hash den. It was there that the early rebetes created their songs. They sang in quiet, harsh voices, unforced, one after the other, each singer adding a verse which often bore no relation to the previous verse, and a song often went on for hours. There was no refrain, and the melody was simple and easy.” Ilias Petropoulos
.
‘Rebet guitar’, focuses on the early rebetiko songs based on the US recordings from 1917 till the 40’s with one guitar, finger-pick style.
‘Rebet guitarS’, a guitar duo, will present the recordings from 1930-1940.

Benefit voku & acoustic night for Mutfak soli kitchen w/ Serpent (be), Branding (be) and Kopfleuchten (de)

20160912_Mutfak_benefitMonday September 12th 2016, Benefit voku & acoustic night for Mutfak soli kitchen w/ Serpent (be), Branding (be) and Kopfleuchten (de). Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm. Gig at 8:30 sharp!!

Mutfak is a migrant solidarity kitchen in Tarlabaşı, Istanbul. It is not like any other kitchen. It has neither cooks nor customers. Here, everybody is a cook and all the food is shared. It belongs to the neighborhood and everyone is welcome. Local markets, shops, organizations, farmer’s cooperatives and all sorts of collectives contribute to the kitchen with vege tables, cereals, oils and other ingredients that they offer. All contributors bring something to put into the pots, stir them and land a hand to whatever is needed. Here neither money nor credit cards are valid, but solidarity and collaboration are. This is a place of sharing our food, labor, ideas, stories and daily lives. The kitchen is not solely about eating. Those who are willing to, can share their knowledge, abilities and experiences with others through workshops. For what comes in handy for one, might also be a tool for the others. To start with, there will be Turkish and English language courses, legal counselling for immigrants, activities for children and craft courses open to everyone’s contribution. This kitchen serves as a locus of solidarity and sharing against all sorts of borders that tear us apart. In these days they are not cooking so much anymore – but are still invested in creating solidary bonds in our neighborhood which has been shaped by migration since a long time. Their current project takes them around Turkey cooking at antimilitary camps. All proceeds from the event will go to help with their equipment and fuel expenses.
