The future of funk is being written right now by a pair of groove theorists named Bibi Tanga and Professeur Inlassable. Singer, bassist, and bandleader Bibi Tanga bridges the divide between the Seine's arty South Bank and the gritty banlieues of his youth. Bibi's music is marked by slinky, sinuous basslines and a wicked falsetto that conjures up Prince and Curtis Mayfield, while producer Professeur Inlassable ("The Tireless Professor") digs deep beneath the cobblestones of Paris to unearth the sound and spirit of another era. Together with Bibi's band The Selenites, the duo forges a stunningly original new sound and creates a space where Afro-futurism meets steampunk and the drive of Fela Kuti blends with the sounds of Sidney Bechet.
