Pamela Badjogo, a Gabonese singer with a bantu soul voice brings introspective and bewitching soul music, mixing traditional mandinka instruments, jazzy vocals and Afro Groove/House.
After evolving as a backing vocal alongside Salif Keita, Oumou Sangaré or Cheick Tidiane Seck, Matthieu Chedid and Tiken Jah Fakoly,… Pamela released her first solo album in 2016 which brought her to the most prestigious stages on the African continent and far beyond.
In 2021 she released her latest album ‘Kaba’. Kaba means ‘fraternal sharing’ in Ndzebi, her father’s language.
She developed this album together with two influential artists from the industry:
Kwame Yeboah, Multi-instrumentalist and arranger of Pat Thomas, and singer and writer of several hits by Craig David and Yusuf Cat Stevens.
Blick Bassy (Sfinks Mixed 2016) also contributed to the album.
Pamela Badjogo puts her music at the service of a joyful feminism as she likes to call it.
Prepare yourself for a bubbling cocktail of women power and clever humour mixing Afro-pop, Bantu- style highlife and Afrobeat that immerses us in the effervescence of the restless nights of Central Africa.Tweet
