Nicodème “Tjap’s” Tjap Oum – Oa (Cameroun, 1980s, OUM 001)

For today, I wanted to share with you “Oa“, an instant catchy Afro Boogie Funk Soul Synth track with Cosmic Makossa grooves, taken from the first single self-produced & recorded in Paris in the 80s by the Cameroonian artist Nicodème “Tjap’s” Trap Oum, native from Nkongsamba in the West region of the country, and who recorded several local hits such as “Tina miñem minan … inyu bonge” & “Tamboura” before slowing down his career due to a lung disease.

This track includes the following musicians :

Bass Guitar : Abou Bass ;

Chorus : Medy Dayas, Michele, Ngo Bavoï Charlotte (Ngo Nkol), Tonye Jackson ;

Guitar : Yves N’Djock ;

Keyboards : Jean Charles Jarrel ;

Saxophone : Charly Bokher ;

Trumpet : Jean-Claude Leandre ;

Always a nice track to warm up a dance floor, hope you’ll like it !

Tala André Marie – Shing-Ha Shing-Ha (Cameroon, 1980s, Self-Produced)

Following to this former post, I wanted to share with you for today “Shing-Ha Shing-Ha“, a super catchy Electro Funk Boogie track with awesome synths & drum machines parts from the legendary Cameroonian musician André-Marie Tala.

This song is actually a cover of “Singha“, one of his former hits taken from his 70s masterpiece album “Black Woman“, re recorded here in an 80s version with legendary Cameroonian & French musicians (Slim Pezin, Justin Bowen, Jimmy Mvondo Mvele, Paul Nemlin, Ndedi Dibango…) and taken from a very hard to find self-produced album – Enjoy !
