Kaissa

To wèni na mala na ma wassa Mboa, mboa mboa (Wherever I go I’m looking for home home home) This is the chorus of Kaïssa’s song “To Ndje,” in which she sings of her longing for Africa and the hope to someday return to her homeland of Cameroon. The song envelopes the listener and she conveys the message with such emotion that we are on the journey with her, a spellbinding singer heralded as the New Voice of Africa. When an original voice rises up, music lovers are moved to listen. Now Kaïssa is the one motivating a fast-growing audience, connecting through soaring vocal talents and the irresistible African-inspired rhythms of her songs. A child of the culturally rich Republic of Cameroon, Kaïssa’s passion for music was fueled by the romance of Paris, where her family relocated when she was still young. Kaissa’s vocal ability began to turn heads in studios throughout the City of Lights, and when the opportunity to join French multi-media artist CharlElie Couture’s European tour arose, Kaïssa stepped on the bus and never looked on the bus and never looked back. Kaïssa’s voice is a unique instrument an electric mix of character and clarity, strength and fragility, total control and unbridled joy

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
