Welcome to behouai.com, home of Beh'Ouai.
"Beh'ouai" (pronounced "bay-way") is informal French slang, an affirmative utterance, common in response to obvious or easy questions; its American English equivalence is "uh-huh" or "um yup".
Beh'ouai's existence in the French parlance is a matter of fact, and goes by unnoticed in everyday conversion, like the breeze that brings the scent of flowers, gathered passing along the riverside.
We strive to provide everything you need to become involved in the Beh'Ouai movement. Services include:
- In-person events
- Online activities
- Audio-visual samples
- Recommended reading
- Goods bartering
- Exclusive fashion statements
- Steps to create a just & equitable society
- Gig bookings
Beh'Ouai is a band: Laure Elie (k,v), Jesse (d), Billy (g), and Krame (b,v) conjure music together. Intuitive sound creation: the transference of universal energy into auditory waves for cranial perception, corporeal enjoyment and asomatous ascension; a fluid, fertile firth, the confluence of the primitive and sophisticated; the cobbling of disparate vibrations into a transmorgraphical whole; an initiation and invitation for the audience to be both spectator and contributor to the proceedings. We call it "cosmic dance music".
The musical, visual, and interactive elements of a Beh'Ouai performance are an expression of this philosophy, every live engagement is a living moment for both the artists and the audience. Relax your body, relax your mind, relax your spirit and channel Beh'Ouai into being, and we will do the same until we are all being Beh'Ouai.
Beh'Ouai is a philosophy: To say "beh'ouai" is to say yes easily, freely, unconditionally. It is an embrace of the possible, plausible and potential; a tacit agreement to accept what life brings your way. Unsure how to proceed among the myriad options life has set at your feet? Simply say "beh'ouai" and go about your day.
Beh'Ouai is a global movement: Every day, more and more people are saying "beh'ouai". Long lines are queueing around virtually every block for the opportunity to be the next to be standing at the front of the line of those queued up to say "beh'ouai". Well, you need to wait no longer1 Say it and it shall be so!
Beh'Ouai is a brand: DIY bootleg merch is now available. Simply grab your favorite permanent marker and write "Beh'Ouai" on whatever tshirt, mug, photo frame or any other physical object is closest at hand. Leave a nickle under your pillow and the merchandising fairy will collect it while you sleep.
