British Prime Minister Theresa May is to face a vote of no-confidence in her own parilamentary party this evening, after Tory rebels mustered enough letters from Conservative MPs supporting the move. May faces a revolt over her Brexit deal and postponed a vote on it in parliament this week, saying it was clear she would not win majority support for it.

Body music or body percussion has become a performance genre in the past ten years and it now has its own annual festival which travels the world. For the first time, the International Body Music festival (IBMF) is being held in Paris with a programme of shows and classes and other lively add-ons.

The festival unites artists with distinct cultural backgrounds from countries as far apart as Colombia and Denmark, or Australia, who share the same passion.

RFI's Rosslyn Hyams reports on the tapping, slapping, thumping, touching, hopping and popping that's going on at the Maison des Métallos until 26 October 2016.
