Stepping into Valérie Ekoumè’s world will be one of the most interesting and fulfilling experience you may have. In her colorful world, Love is king and Afropop is the music she choose to express.
After the great success of her first CD “DJAALE” and CD release performances that brought her from Japan to big European stages as Afrika Festival Wurzburg or Den Atelier Luxembourg, she is now about to release her second opus “KWIN NA KINGUE”.
In this new album, Valérie EKOUME digs more into her cameroonians roots. The result are powerful and original songs mixed with Bikutsi or even Essèwè- traditional Cameroonian music- . So get ready to dance !
After 8 years of backing vocal ( c’est le bon mot ?) with Manu Dibango in Soul Makossa Gang, Valerie continues to stand and use her own voice. Welcome into her colorful world, where traditional music is a real base and love is the answer.
