Big Freedia

Welcome to the world of Big Freedia, the queen diva of bounce. Welcome to New Orleans, where bounce has been celebrated in underground clubs since the 80’s. Bounce is a hyperactive form of hip-hop, a dance floor monster with brute beats and dirty lyrics. But bounce also stands for carefree self-irony, openness to all gender identities and a clear rejection of sexism. In the meantime, Drake and Beyoncé have ensured that bounce is also known in the mainstream. Right in the middle of the fray is Big Freedia, official world record holder in twerking and reality show hosting. She will do everything to make the Kilbi audience shake their booties en masse.
