Bio

Batimbo Percussion Magique from Burundi is a mixed ensemble bringing song, dance and percussion to LIMF 2022. Started in 1997, the ensemble has members ranging in age from 10 to 50 years.

Drums form a key part of the ensemble's performance and play a significant part in Burundian culture.  They have been used throughout history for royal and other significant events and more popular culture in recent times.

Each performance piece tells a story and whether it be a drum-only piece or a combined drum, song and dance piece, Burundian culture is exuded through the rhythms, the energy and vibrant performances.

Some of their favourite pieces to perform include songs such as: 'Urinyambo Burundi' which means 'Burundi Beautiful Country' and Amahoro Mu Burundi' meaning 'Peace in Burundi'. Some of the dances include 'Agasimbo' and 'Umuyebe'. In an impressive mix of dance, percussion and song, LIMF will be treated to an exciting programme!

The Batimbo Percussion Magique has participated in a number of festivals around the world including India, PR China and U.A.E.
