Let the hills echo with live, free music! Our Sunday Stroll Shelburne Falls 10-week riverside music & market series kicks off with a riverside reggae party on Sunday, July 3 at 1pm with Roots Fiyah, and ReBelle at 4pm.
@ReBelleWorldwide is a formidable musical force conceived in love, rebellion and the evocative musical vigor of Emmanuel Manou and Kalpana Devi.
Their eloquent musical composition runs along limbs of Rasta, elements of Jahzz and folk, poetic insurgence and ardent rhythms.
Kalpana and Manou’s energetic voices persuade a human race toward potent change-making. Nothing remains the same after a ReBelle experience. If you want to dance as you dream; chant on the move; find yourself in the compelling atmosphere of origin, then come to ReBelle.
They will more than meet you there. They’ll take you there.
In their music and their lives, ReBelle is an intergenerational and intercultural band from Africa and America. Founded by Emmanuel Manou and Kalpana Devi, the ReBelle story is rich in a foundation of love and powerful musicianship. ReBelle plays all original music, sung in four different languages, English, Wolof, Creole and French. Their powerhouse vocalists chant meditations on liberation while the band propels roots reggae soul. The band’s mystical mix of pulsing tribal rhythms, guitar and tight harmonies is internationally acclaimed. In Africa, performances include the Blaise Senghor Institute in Senegal, Reggae Sunsplash in Senegal and Baia das Gatas Festival in Cape Verde. ReBelle is heard on airwaves throughout Africa, Europe, Jamaica, the Americas and the world. In the U.S., along the east coast, from Maine to Florida to California, ReBelle has performed hundreds of concerts at noted festivals, venues and colleges including the International Festival of Arts and Ideas, SOB’s, Fire Water Festival, Harmonic Convergence Festival, Bel Chere, LEAF Festival, Ziontific, Vermont Reggae Festival, Ocean State Reggae, sell-out crowds at the Iron Horse Music Hall, Pearl Street Night Club, The Roxy, House of Blues, Reggae Sunsplash, New England Reggae Festival, Guilford College, Warren Wilson, Hampshire College, UMASS, Amherst College, Smith College to name just a few.
