London, UK – Coco Mbassi has released her first live DVD, which
includes performances in Freiburg, Germany and Duala, Cameroon. The multiple
award nominee and winner (RFI, BBC Radio 3, German CD Critics’ Award), known for her mellow and intricate music and her sultry and delicate vocals, symbolizes
our global world as she elegantly blends African roots with Gospel, Soul,
Classical and Jazz influences she acquired over the years.From a young age, Coco was exposed to African modern and traditional music,
Haendel, James Brown, the Jackson Five, as well as Mahalia Jackson and others.
Years later, when she moved to Paris, she started singing backing vocals in
Paris with most major World Music acts. She started touring worldwide in 1997
and has never stopped presenting her two albums Sepia and Sisea as she performs;
Reading, Lafayette, Duala, Berlin, Singapore and even Adelaide will benefit from
Coco’s enchanting music and voice.
Produced by Conserprod Ltd, Coco Mbassi Tour features the artist’s full band in
concert, as well as acoustic performances of some songs. It also includes
interviews and ‘behind the scenes’ and previously unseen footage of fun moments,
rehearsals and even a trip to Cameroon, her homeland.
