Anne-Marie Nzie – Djih Yang (Cameroon, 1975, Pathe Marconi)

For today, I decided to present you “Djih Yang”, a very deep folk bikutsi track with jazz reminiscences taken from the first album from the great Anne-Marie Nzié, my favourite singer from Cameroon and considered by many (that includes me) as the Queen of the Bikutsi (a traditional Cameroonian musical genre).

She passed away last year in 2016, may she rest in peace..

Liza Ngwa – Alima (Cameroun, 1980, Editions Drums)

Liza Ngwa was a folk singer and guitar player from Yaoundé (Cameroon), who released 2 albums in the 70’s.

She was also involved into different form of art (sculpture, dress-making, sport..) and cultural performances (theater performances, concerts..).

I decided to make you (re)discover “Alima”, a very unique folk song with psychedelic bikutsi and cadence reminiscences, taken from her second album recorded in 1980.
