Beast is an experimental union between the powerful and sensual voice of Beatrice Bonifassi and the dirty, in your face beats of composer and drummer Jean-Phi Goncalves.
Having performed wonderfully on the 2004 Oscar Winner Sound Track – The Triplettes de Belleville, Betty then joined her voice and songwriting skills with DJ Champion’s to create a major impact on the local, national and international scene on Champion’s Chill ‘Em All album. Betty’s uniquely textured voice then charmed and inspired Jean-Phi, leader of Montreal’s new sensation electro band, Plaster.
For his part, Jean-Phi has made eclecticism his own specialty. Lead drummer and original electro-jazz composer, he has taken part in many projects. From Lauryn Hill (Fugees) to Jean-Pierre Ferland (Jaune 2005), Ariane Moffat (albums/shows), Pierre Lapointe (La forêt des mal-aimés), Daniel Bélanger, to name a few, Jean-Phi has always known how to strongly impress with his own musical touch and is a sought-after remixer and producer.
