Bideew Bou Bess

  • BBB Slider Image

These Senegalese brothers combine their native sound with world music and hip-hop. Instrumentalists, composers and songwriters, they released their first international album in 2001 and are famous in their home country for using their native tongue over African-infused hip-hop. Committed supporters of sustainable development and social change, the brothers launched an ‘I belong’ campaign two years ago to raise awareness of the issue of statelessness releasing a video and song by the same name.
