Växjö Internationella Studenter & Kafé de luxe presents:

ROCK* FOR REFUGEES – Insamling, musik, diskussion, glädje – till förmån för människor på flykt i världen. The ENTIRE entrance fee of this night will be sent to the Red Cross humanitarian aid to refugees in need. Money will be split into two parts – one for international aid, and one for local aid to newly arrived refugees.

We open up our basement at 18, and until 22 we serve food and drinks from our Happy Hour menu.

Program is not yet ready yet, but here are three amazing music acts that will be seen on stage during night:

19: Xaled Sofi (SY)
Xaled är en etablerad musiker i hemlandet Syrien, men har sedan ankomsten till Sverige i första hand arbetat som pizzabagare. Han är multiinstrumentalist, men kommer denna kväll att ackompanjera sin sång med det arabiska stränginstrumentet Oude. Xaled skänker hela sitt gage till insamlingen!
I videon nedan ser ni inslag från Syrisk TV där Xaled (till skillnad från denna kväll) spelar ackompanjerad av helt band.

20.30: I Keep Ears In Buckets (UK) & Abdou Cissokho (SN)
Ösig Folkmusik från de Brittiska öarna! David Foley, Matthew Jones och Dave Gray är tre stigande stjärnor på den brittiska och internationella folkmusikscenen med band som Last Orders (BBC 2 Radio Young Folk Award Winners) Horizontal Sunday och Rura (BBC Radio 2 Horizon Nominees). Tillsammans skapar de en svängig mix av engelsk och skotsk folkmusik och en stor portion humor.
Med den senegalesiska 40 strängade koran och sin röst för Abdou Cissokho griot traditionen vidare in i modern tid. Nyskriven musik med flera hundra år gamla rötter, berättelser och visdomsord om livet. Live and direct from Senegal! Se en mästare födas!

22.00: Kolonien
Kolonien startades för en spelning på Zanzibar, Tanzania år 2010, 2011 blev de prisade som Årets Unga Folkmusikband. För sitt debutalbum Clockwise (2012) blev Kolonien utsedda till Årets Nykomling på Folk- & Världsmusikgalan. Våren 2015 släppte de sitt andra album Drömmarnas land.

De har nu över 250 (!) spelningar i sju olika länder bakom sig, och har kallats Sveriges flitigaste folkband. Den som såg bandet hos oss i våras vet att inte missa detta tillfälle! Kolonien får med sin kraftfulla mix av folkmusik, pop och reggae kommer dansgolvet att gunga!

23.30: NYBOKAT Världens Band
Världens Band performs folk and roots music from their native countries in a collision of cultures and a style they have self-branded as ‘Transglobal Roots Fusion’. Formed in 2012, Världens Band is an explosive orchestra where Swedish melodies meet Scottish reels, English guitar accompanies Indian classical song, Galician pipes play Balkan melodies and the Senegalese kora blends with Mediterranean rhythms. The result is a unique and exciting blend of culture, personality and style…

Fotnot:
Vi tänker oss “rock” i detta fall som verbet rock. Alltså fritt översatt “kör järnet”. Musikstilen rock är inget vi väntar!
