Thanks to the local collective Rebel Up!, invited by Bozar, the kora will also resonate during the night. Together, they present a bold lineup of DJs and live artists, in collaboration with Reset.

How to bring together two vastly different sonic universes without losing their essence? Malian kora master Ballaké Sissoko and Italian composer Lorenzo Bianchi Hoesch have very much succeeded in fusing their two worlds: kora music and electronic soundscapes. The two musicians go in search of common roots, seeing the West African string instrument as seed and electronics as sunlight. Bianchi Hoesch live records the acoustic kora and envelops it with layers of electronics. Far from being opposites, the two musical worlds merge into a meditative yet compelling performance. A sound collab that fits perfectly within the Belgian-Dutch music label Rebel Up!, co-organisers of the evening.

Kora Days is a collaboration with Muziekpublique and Reset. This concert will take place at Reset, where the former Dexia offices were transformed into a temporary club and auditorium.
