About Coco Mbassi

Coco Mbassi was born in Paris, France and originates from Cameroon.

Her music is a subtle blend of African roots, classical music, jazz and gospel, along with the modern feeling of acoustic soul music, which she mostly composes herself and co-produces. Winner of several prestigious music awards (Radio France Internationale Découvertes Contest in 1996, German World Music CD Critics Award in 2001 and nominated for the BBC World Music Awards 2002), the singer toured worldwide with her band for over 2 decades, performing at the Eden Project Live 8 Concert 2005 (organised by Peter Gabriel), Louisiana International Festival, Jazz Sous Les Pommiers, Normandy, France, Festival d’Eté in Montréal and Nuits d’Afrique in Québec, Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin, Afroprojekt in Würzburg...), Womad festivals in Reading, UK; Caceres, Spain; Las Palmas, Canary Islands, Singapore, and Womadelaide and more.

Coco started singing as a child, even before she could speak. Back home in Cameroon where she spent her childhood years and where all musical genres were appreciated, she would wake up to Haendel’s Messiah on Sunday mornings, dance to the Jackson Five or the latest Makossa hits, and during school holidays, she would visit to her father’s village and sing and dance traditional Ambass Bey songs.

After her return in Paris as a teenager, and after finishing secondary school and studying for a few years at university, her career as a backing vocalist started on stage and during recording sessions with stars of world music and French and international pop. She also took part in several contemporary, classical, pop and gospel projects, and she was one of lead singers of Cirque du Soleil’s show Totem for a short period of time. Coco Mbassi has recorded four albums to date: Sepia (2001), Sisea (2003), a live DVD called ‘Coco Mbassi Tour’ in 2005, and Jóa, (2014), and she recently released her first African polyphony album titled, Ashuka Series Vol. 1. After that, she release her first single, Palaba, in May 2021.

Coco has finished recording her latest EP - it will be released on 21.4.23.
