Bounce, bounce, bounce like it’s “808” with the duo Bebi Monsuta. Sisters Manami and Akira bring together their multi-cultural background, their hometown of New York City, and their creativity to create the Bebi Mansuta sound.
The word Bebi means baby in Japanese while Monsuta means monster. Bebi Monsuta captures the duality of the group’s music, stage presence, and even the sibling dynamic. Manami and Akira hope that their music can explore all aspects of their personalities and allow fans to embrace the aspects of themselves that are cute and tough. Bebi Monsuta is intended to be for the outcast, the villains, and those who don’t want to be defined by a box.
The musical style of Bebi Monsuta is inspired by Akira and Manami’s unique cultural background and marries their heritage through music. Fans can hear soul music, Brazilian funk, and techno beats throughout their discography. The sisters’ authenticity is woven into their musical expression. They hope that their ability to be unapologetically themselves will become a catalyst for fans to do the same. In their own words:
“We want people to feel motivated and worthy, we want those who listen to this project to feel that the truth is and will always be better than a lie. Stand in it, own it and be brave.”
Bebi Monsuta is on their way to making a name for themselves while promoting self love, acceptance, and exploration.Their music video for alternative R&B song “808” brings together 80s aerobics videos and lingerie, and it will make listeners excited to bounce, bounce, bounce, like it’s 808 or like it’s 1988.
Bebi Monsuta’s second single from their EP RäkStär which showcases the group’s Monsuta side while keeping the same bouncy vibe as their single 808. RäkStär and 808, give fans a taste of the Bebi Monsuta duality and introduces them to the sound of their upcoming EP.
