    'Extravagant', 'extragalactic', 'extralogical' or 'extratonal'; by adding the prefix 'extra' we indicate something 'non-ordinary'. Get ready for another exceptional evening in Rotterdam Charlois with performances that go beyond our common understanding!

    Rebetiko Against The Machine is a Greek folk music trio, based in the Netherlands. They perform originals next to beloved classic Rebetiko covers. Their Rebetika repertoire is mainly based on pre-war recordings of their favorite composers, whose atmosphere and teachings the group tries to bring to today. They will be accompanied by local troublemaker athinx.


    Illusory Essay of Noise: Cem and Daphnis unite to explore the concealed facets of their inner worlds. The performance blends dynamic anti-portraits, para-phonic synth scape-sounds, poetry, and voice, gently prompting contemplation on the vulnerabilities of the human psyche and physicality, all in pursuit of solace rather than conformity to societal expectations.


    Riviera Taylor is a live coder who recently moved to Rotterdam. Live coding involves creating algorithmic music and visuals with computer code. In this performance graphics are rendered with Fluxus while sounds are handled by TidalCycles.


    The Salty Sebastians are sonic explorers that bring an analog modulated palette of dubbed sounds, intertwined with world music ranging from Indian drones to Italian opera. Their tools vary from a vinyl and tape player to interactive equipment, such as a modular synth or a groove- and shruti box.

    dj broodje from Charlois is back with some freshly baked disks. Get ready for a new yeast/water/flour mix!

    This event is made possible with the support of Popunie Rotterdam.
