“Mariama”, is a programme with African music. Two artists from Cameroon: singer Njamy Sitson and multi-instrumentalist Richard Bona.
Njamy Sitson is a young singer from West Cameroon, and what’s more an inspiring teacher who released his first CD “African Angel” last year. An album with poly-vocal music with many influences from West and Central Africa, but also with Catholic influences (even from Gregorian chanting). and still the album forms a whole with spiritual animation: a true African Angel sings here!
