In the past years, Cameroon has been successfully represented at the Concours Decouvertes RFI by artists like Sally Nyolo, Macase, and recently Kareyce Fotso , finalist in the 2009 edition.
Two Cameroonian artists are already on the starting line for the 2010 edition, the beautiful and talented Sanzy Viany, and very original ”Si tu voir ma go” crooner Koppo.
Sanzy Viany hails from the Lékié in the Central Region. Using her voice, she has thrived to use her mother tongue, ”Eton” to conquer Cameroon. Her style reflects ethnic world music. Just the style you will love to listen no matter where you are. She blends Cameroon ethnic rhythms like Ekomot, or Ewanga with soul, jazz, rumba, bossa nova, which demonstrates her thirst for universality.
Sandrine Dzinguene a.k.a Sanzy Viany presents herself at the Concours Decouverte RFI with an album, dubbed ”Akouma” , released in April 2009. An album of eight tracks, recorded live with musicians like Faser, bassist and bandleader, Moses Nzieh on the keyboard, Roger Minka ; guitar, Christina Ndengue on drums. Her song ”Minga Atan” is simply irresistible.
Pending the result of the competition, Sanzy continues with her shows. On the 13th of August, she will perform at Mid-Sahel in Yaounde, on the occasion of the third edition of “Demain au feminin”, a concept that aims to project female talents which features Danielle Eog, and the veteran Mary Anne Nzie.
Another Cameroonian selected is Koppo. His hit song ”si tu voir ma go” at the time of its release turned into an anthem in Cameroon because of its originality. The rapper blends French, Pidgin English and local languages to create a style unique to him. He has remixed the song and it successfully convinced the judges.
