Today, I wanted to share with you one of my favourite secret dancefloor weapon, a track from Bell’a Njoh, a Cameroonian artist native of Douala and a friend of mine who passed away a few years ago..
Bell’A Njoh was, with Nkotti François and his Black Styls, one of the father of the Makossa, a musical genre from the city of Douala, and he recorded several albums from the 70s to the 90s.
“Ebolo“, the track presented here, is a unique Tropical Afro Disco Boogie song with crazy synths, taken from his first albums and that always set on fire all the dancefloors when I play it – Enjoy !!

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..
