In New Orleans (a more sexually tolerant city in the states) ‘that beat’ is bounce music. Since the early 90’s the sissy bounce movement has been trying to bring the genre to a global audience and it’s all about celebrating bodies of all sizes through dance, whilst embracing the LGBT community. The explicit dancing, notably described as –“hypersexual, bumping-and-grinding”- entails shaking your rear end like there’s no tomorrow n’ basically fetishizing butts.

Nokia Music and Sundance Channel Presents: from the New American Noise series – ‘That B.E.A.T.’ A short doc covering the blossoming New Orleans-based bounce scene. In this episode, the LA-based director Abteen Bagheri exhibits the core of sissy bounce, making (some of us) blush with excitement. The documentary features interviews and music with the most distinguished bounce artist within the genre, from Sissy Nobody, Nicky Da BDiplo, and Big Freedia. Hands down -it’s a sigh of relief that Nokia are attaching their name to this groundbreaking film.
