Audio: French/Afrobeat Ambassadeurs Bibi Tanga & The Selenites


Fresh off a NYC gig, Bibi Tanga & The Selenites offer up their newest release, Dunya This new album takes listeners on a wild, eclectic tour through the history and pre-history of funk, layering Afrobeat rhythms over electro-tinged soul and cosmopolitan trans-Atlantic grooves. Together with The Selenites, the duo forges a stunningly original new sound, and creates a space where Afro-futurism meets steampunk, Fela Kuti jams with Sidney Bechet and Marcel Duchamp gets down to Chic. If you haven't heard Bibi, check out the track below, "Be Africa."
