There aren't too many with a story like J.P. Bimeni. "Burundi is a country at war with itself and my family is a microcosm of this", says J.P. who was born to a republican-leaning, high-ranking military official father and a mother who was a descendant of the royal family. A civil war began in 1993, an inter ethnic conflict with massive loss of life. Bimeni was targeted, followed and shot through the chest, left on the brink of death. After hearing later that he was on the wanted list from his hospital bed in Kenya, he registered as a refugee and applied for a scholarship program run by the UN Refugee Agency. At 16, he left Africa for a college in Wales with a chance of a better life and the opportunity to make music for a living.
