Bideew Bou Bess (Senegal)
Composed of three brothers: Moctar, Beydi and Ibrahim – Bou Bess Bideew was born in 1994 in the suburbs of Dakar.
In 1996, after winning a contest organized by the Ministry of Education, these young artists were identified by the label Youssou Ndour (Jololi) who decided to produce the band’s first album in Senegal in 1999 (with Wyclef Jean’s participation on the track “Ndékété yo”). It is therefore no surprise that the album was a total success and exploded on record sales this year. Bideew Boubess revealed themselves to the Senegalese public before the first part of the Youssou Ndour world tour (Jokko Tour) in 2000.
2001 was the meeting with Passi who fell under the spell of these young prodigies. He invited the group to participate on two tracks (“Ex nihilo”, “Family and Friends”) on his album (“Genesis”) to be awarded a double gold disc in France. The group then signed with his label (ISSAP Production) who produced their first international album (“Original”) in 2003.
With these experiences, Bideew Bou Bess decided to create their own production. With this new structure, this young group of talent continues to lead confirmed his boat to the way of success.
