Henry Dool, A singer/dancer from cameroon who blends R&B rhythms and Afrcan lyrics
Henry Dool, who hails from Cameroon, has always been an entertainer from childhood. His love of music landed him in France, where he released several albums with various groups. He also worked as a dancer and choreographer for several artists in Europe's pop scene. Though Cameroon's mainstream music is "Makossa," he never particularly wanted to limit his style and therefore found an inclination towards pop music. His journey to the U.S has proven to give him an opportunity to make it or break it; the stage is set.
"Ayo Mba Nde" is an illuminating sultry album that speaks for itself. Fusing the aroma of African vocals with Hip-Hop rhythms and occasionally interjected by rap cues, Henry Dool sets his mark as a rising singer/songwriter and dancer with the likes of Angeligue Kidjo Richard Bona, Manu Dibango.
His Hip-Hop/R&B compositions expose a range of melodic blends, funkly weaved with African grooves to make this album an exceptional project. As a singer and dancer in Europe and Africa, he grew up listening to old school music with his influences ranging from James Brown to R. Kelly. His North American debut transcends his lyrics to a new audience and promises to be a breakthrough project. This album appeals to R&B, Hip-Hop, Afrobeat, Afropean and World music connoisseurs.
Henry Dool is truly a musical force to be reckoned with!
