Hailing from Geneva, Switzerland, bassist and composer Alissia Benveniste has been enjoying the success of her original funk tune “Let It Out” with her band, the Funketeers. A YouTube phenomenon, a video of the song has garnered nearly 300,000 views in four months. This success has spurred a momentum in the bassists’ career that manifests itself in a variety of projects she is currently undertaking. Be it headlining a number of festivals with the Funketeers, or working on her EP and on a new video, Alissia and her band are happy to be bringing funk to a newer, younger, digitally-groomed generation.
