Back to Musiques du Cameroun
Jean-Pierre Essome is part of a younger generation of Cameroonian
musicians that have combined makossa with Congolese influences.
Since his first cassettes, his harder hitting music is extremely dancable and made
furore in Cameroonian discos.
Still a part-time musician, Essome is working as a manager in the hotel sector in Cameroon. He started in the music business practically by accident, although he sang in a choir since young age. His first cassette was self-produced after a misunderstanding with a producer. Since then, he became increasingly successful in Cameroon. In 2000, he toured extensively in Cameroon, soon hopefully also elsewhere.
Style: makossa and soukous
