ABOUT

The band name is derived from a play on words drawn from an expression in Bambara, the most common language in Mali, « funteni bé bi», which means “it is hot today”. Funteni Baby’s music is a unique blend of western rock influences surfing on an African groove. It is a mixture of Mandingue percussion, electric guitar, bass and singing in various African and European languages.
