BINTOU’S FAVORITE

A favorite for those who give their time to help people in precariousness.

Office neighbour, occasional columnist in Néo Géo, journalist, deputy editor at Nova and web manager. He is Bastien Stisi and he reveals to us why every Monday he disappears from the radio to engage in other activities.

In his first novel hollow stomach, Bastien Stisi recounts his experience as a volunteer and co-manager of a Restos du Coeur branch. A commitment that he describes through his feelings, from the operation of these weekly distributions of free meals to the meetings with the beneficiaries.

The book was published on January 25 by Alisio editions.

THE CLASSICO: “Mulher do fim do mundo” by Elza Soares

Tribute to Brazilian diva Elza Soares in Neo Geo Nova!

The Brazilian singer left us on January 20, she was 91 years old.

“Elza Soares was an assertive black woman, who showed off abusive afro brushings and walked around in pyramid-heeled shoes. Elza is the revolt that rumbles.”

Back to his electro album, beyond the standards, “Mulher do fim do mundo“, a classic told by journalist Véronique Mortaigne.

“In 2015, Elza Soares takes everyone by surprise, wins a Grammy Latino, with Mulher do fim do mundo, an electro album, a concentrate of cross-sectional demands – negritude, feminism, transexuality, socialism.“
