James BKS, or the hectic story of an incredible multi-instrumentalist artist. The French artist has composed and produced for the greatest rappers in the US: Ja Rule, P. Diddy and Snoop Dogg, no less. Late in life, he learned that he was the biological son of Manu Dibango and turned this heritage into an inspiration. Back in France, he created his own universe, but for himself this time, featuring a perfect combination of sounds inspired by hip-hop beats and traditional Cameroonian music. His artistic and personal journey is now embodied by a relaxed, unifying and prodigiously inspiring flow.
