Le BIM (Benin International Musical ) collectif musical du Bénin revient en France à l’occasion de la sortie de son premier album .
« Chose rare, le collectif BIM associe toutes les origines ethniques du Benin assorties de leur richesse musicale – mais aussi celle venue du monde entier : que ce soit du groove, de l’electro, du rock, du hip hop » (Rolling Stones Magazine ) / Une claque musicale venue du Bénin ( Ouest France )
Associating voodoo rhythms and traditional songs, electronic melodies in the very spicy Beninese style with trip pop grooves, hip hop and rock, this collective of Beninese artists has all it takes to make us travel. Indeed Benin is the cradle of major musical movements in the 20th century (jazz, salsa, funk, hip hop…). Cradle of the African funk and of voodoo rhythms, fascinating fashionable references quoted by the American rappers and the great current rock bands (Arcade Fire, Franz Ferdinand, Vampire Weekend…). From jazz to rock through blues, gospel, rap, all the so-called “modern music” started out from Cotonou and Ouidah with the slaves. Initiated by Hervé Riesen, Deputy Director at the channels and contents Department in Radio France and Chairman of the EBU Eurosonic Group (European Broadcasting Union), BIM is a musical and radio project. Jérôme Ettinger, producer – World Tour Records and Togezer Productions is also a composer, beatmaker and is currently recording the album with Jean-Paul Romann (Tinariwen). BIM is a project of Radio France in partnership with , the EBU (European Broadcast Union of TV and Radio), Rolling Stone Magazine, URTI (Union international of Radio and TV) and TV5 Monde.
