Bio (french/english) Bibi Tanga :
Originaire de Bangui (Centre Afrique), BIBI TANGA est attiré par le groove sous toutes ses coutures. Curtis Mayfield, James Brown, Sly Stone ou encore Fela, le TPOK Jazz de Franco à Kinshasa, le Bembeya Jazz National guinéen demeurent ses références. Elles font corps en 2000 sur son premier album "Le vent qui souffle", né de la rencontre avec LA MALKA FAMILY et le label Français HIPI MUSIC. L'album "Yellow Gauze", sorti chez L'INLASSABLE DISQUE en septembre 2007 est né d'une autre rencontre, avec Le Professeur Inlassable, un autre illuminé musical qui s'adonne à une "recherche fondamentale". Ce dernier a publié sa "Leçon Numéro Un" chez Ici d'Ailleurs en 2004, un disque qui laisse entrevoir une griffe évidente en matière de fusion des genres et d'ambiances organiques. "Yellow Gauze" n'a pourtant pas de règles. Aussi bien influencé par le hip hop que par le gospel, le funk ou le jazz, cet album évoque une vision musicale kaléidoscopique, chaleureuse et résolument urbaine.

Born in Bangui, BIBI TANGA is attracted to groove in all its shapes. Curtis Mayfield, James Brown, Sly Stone and also Fela, the TPOK Jazz of Franco in Kinshasa, the National Guinean Bembeya Jazz remain his references. All bodied in 2000 into his first album “Le vent qui souffle “ marked by his encounter with THE MALKA FAMILY and HIPI MUSIC label. “Yellow Gauze” album is marked by another encounter with LE PROFESSEUR INLASSABLE, another music junkie who started devoting himself to "a fundamental research", and it's been released by l'inlassable disQue. Le Professeur Inlassable released “Leçon Numéro Un (Lesson Number One)” on ICI D'AILLEUR label in 2004, a record that displays an obvious signature in terms of musical genre blending and organic ambiences. “Yellow Gauze” has no rules. Influenced by hip-hop as much as Gospel music, funk or jazz, this album evokes a musical kaleidoscopic vision, warm and resolutely urban.
