36 Birds is a swiss-congolese Singer/Songwriter, currently based in Bern, originating from a family of musicians and dancers. 36Birds consequentally
spent a big part of his childhood at concerts and dance studios. It was only natural for him to follow the same path.
Influenced by Hip-Hop and R'n'B-culture, he began writing and recording his own songs at the age of fifteen, but felt that as a homosexual brown
man, it wouldn’t be easy for him to fit into this machoistic, hypermasculine environment.
He fell in love with the Techno-Scene, and shortly after met his current Production Team, Melvyn Buss and Arci Friede, also known for their collectives
Monumental Men and Sirens of Lesbos. 36 Birds started to combine r’n’b with techno- and rave-elements, shaping his very own sound, what he calls
rave’n’b or darkroom-pop.
In his songs he tells stories about race, religion and sexuality. He hopes people will be able to identify with his lyrics and somehow find a coping-system
in his music.
