Bimbi’s the Afrobeat vessel for universal connection; music, culture, creativity, experience and belief. Bimbi's inspiration has been inspired from many sources, hence, his vocals are rooted within the tunes of Fela Kuti, his melodies taking inspiration from R&B duo P-Square. His musical "bounce" has been compared to Wayne Wonder's easy flow, and infusing EDM rhythms used by the likes of Major Lazer, David Guetta and Calvin Harris, again not a copy, but like so much in music in the 21st century using as many influences as possible and as necessary to kick off with truly cool vibes.
