Star Feminine Band | Debut album
Star Feminine Band come from a remote region of north-west Benin, a group of young girls aged between nine and fifteen who blend, with humour, energy and a lightness of touch, styles like garage rock, pop and the traditional music of their home. Their eponymous album is out now on cult French indie label Born Bad.
The genesis of the group
At the end of 2018, a meeting between a young French sound engineer, Jérémie Verdier, was a key moment in the progress of the project. He invited his Spanish friends Juan Toran and Juan Serra to bring their recording equipment and capture the first songs in an annex of a museum in Natitingou. By pure chance, Jean-Baptiste Guillot of the Born Bad label heard the recordings and decided to meet the group in their own country at the end of 2019. This album is the fruit of that meeting.
