The Idiosyncratic Vocals of Moken

Moken – Missing Chapters

Moken – Missing Chapters (Moodswing Records, 2019)

Cameroonian singer-songwriter Moken delivers a genre-defying album where virtuosic jazz meets Afro-roots, American folk, lively Afropop and blues.

The signature sound of Moken is his inventive vocals; he uses unexpected, quirky vocal modulations, shifting his pitch throughout a song, similar to the work of Portuguese-Cape Verdean singer Carmen Souza.

This is a feelings album. Whatever felt right, we kept it,” reveals Moken. “This album has given me the musical wings I always wanted, the wings to fly and create.”
