Biography

International, Burundian Singer, composer and master drummer, Jean-Pierre Nimbona, aka Kidum Kibido- is a Nairobi-based artist whose infectious tunes have hooked legions of fans in East Africa and throughout the world.
Kidum is a World African Music Icon and winner of the 2012 African Grammy, The Kora. He is an Ambassador for Peace helping foster hope and reconciliation in East Africa. His secular but spiritual songs range from rocking zouk to acoustic classics, all featuring his vocal prowess.

Kidum, whose nick-name was given to him by his mother and literally means a 20 litre jug, admits he was a very big baby, his musical inspiration started at age 10 when he started to play the drums. When he eventually came to Kenya as a refugee, he went off to Nairobi in search of a living and promptly joined a band as a drummer and singer; it took 4 years before Kidum Kibido eventually started writing his own songs, which was the starting point to sharing his heart and passion with the people. He has never looked back.

Kidum’s first album, Yaramenje (2001), established him as the Voice of Peace in the Great Lakes region in Africa. This followed with the hugely successful Shamba album, released in 2003. The 2006 Ishano album portrays Kidum’s vocal best with the rocking zouk Kichuna. With the 2010 release of Haturudi Nyuma - Kidum is granted The Kora Award (the African Grammy equivalent) for his songs Mapenzi, Nitafanya and Haturudi Nyauma. In 2012, Kidum recorded the popular Hali Na Mali album which includes the successful singles Mulika Mwizi, Kimbia, Enjoy and Hali Na Mali.

Kidum exhibits multiple talents as a composer, vocalist, drummer and arranger par excellence, although his earlier songs were recorded in the Kirundi language - he progressed to singing in Kiswahili where his spiritual and philosophical compositions became accessible to a wider audience. Kidum’s journey to stardom has been inspiring because of his passion, resilience and hard work, overcoming hurdles that could have easily discouraged many.

Such talent and determination now finds the international artist Kidum singing in French, English and Spanish with his current BodaBoda Band, (translated as Crossing Borders) His band performs throughout Africa, Middle East, soon in Europe, Canada, USA and Latin America.
