Musical style

Cameroon / France

Passionate about music from a very young age, the Frenchwoman originally from Cameroon got her start working several years with Manu Dibango and his Maraboutik Big Band. Singing backup with big name artists took her all over the world to major festivals such as Cannes and helped her perfect her art. In 2015, it was time to fly solo... Miss Ékoumè released Djaale, her first album, firmly anchored in Afro pop open to the world, a reflection of her many inspirations. Valérie Ékoumè's bright and playful music is a gentle breeze that takes listeners on an intoxicating journey of sound. In 2017, she did it again with the release of Kwin NaKingue, a collection of 10 equally exquisite world beat titles.
