Brigitte is a two headed french chick, a blond and a brunette, one crowning a headband and the other rocking big round glasses, Brigitte is a mother, a wife and a free liberated woman. They are retro, hippies crazy about hip hop, who love ABBA and Marylin Monroe, as much as stories of gangsters and slags. To resume, beware of our she-wolves. Great songs, amazing live presence and trully magnificent voices, Brigitte is definitely the next best thing out of the cheese country.
This 29 years old boy is is gaining ground fast and many considers him as the upcoming of the French hip hop! His flow and his lyrics lyrics made him one of the most popular french rapper. Orelsan is called the “French Eminem”!His new album “Le chant des sirenes” is already a gold disc in France with more than 50 000 copy sold!
Rarely has there been a band that creates their own universe. Shaka Ponk made that magical step and leapt from being a band to being a brand and an icon – just what it takes to succeed in the ultra-communicative and here-today, gone-tomorrow 21st century. Musically, Hip Hop fuses with Electro, Metal uses sequences, rap phrasings, and puzzle-pieces from across the globe are being pieced together into the fiery-hot SHAKA-mix: Red Hot Chili Peppers meet Frank Zappa, Manu Chao meets ZZ Top, Zodiac Mindwarp meets Gogol Bordello, AC/DC meet Talking Heads.
