Soul Rebels…..from Fela to Dilla and beyond!
Soul Rebels is the live music and DJ session hosted by Lubi at The Wardrobe in Leeds, one of the city’s best known medium size music venues since it opened in 1999.
Soul Rebels brings together all Lubi’s favourite music genres under one roof… soul, jazz, funk, hiphop, reggae, Brazilian beats, Latin and afrobeat – hence the motto “…from Fela to Dilla and beyond!”
It’s all about the live bands with Lubi and fellow Soul Rebels DJ Chris Welch spinning good sounds before, between and after the live sets. Artists who have appeared so far come from near and far and include Jose James (Blue Note Records – NYC), Omar (Freestyle Records), Fayth Hope (Atlanta Georgia), TY (Tru Thoughts), Ed Motta (Brasil), The Abstract Orchestra, Ariya Astrobeat Arkestra (First Word Records), Thabo & The Real Deal, Jungle Fire (Colemine Records – L.A.), The Mouse Outfit & Dr Syntax, London Afrobeat Collective, Ikestra, The Colman Brothers (Wah Wah Records)… Soul Rebels sessions run monthly from February to December with breaks for Easter and the Summer… check the calendar for the next event…
