ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
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!

Makossa Potomac
I enjoyed listening to Henry Dool's new album titled Makossa Potomac. I am an aficionado of African and world music. I must confess that this album is a classic of modern African popular music; it fuses Makossa and Soukous--music varieties from the Cameroons and the Congos. A connoiseur of African music will observe the rhythms of other African peoples in the ten songs that make up Henry Dool's new album.
Ewanda iyo, the first song, focuses on the singer's love for a beautiful lady who is still in Africa. In Crazy love, the second song, the singer expresses the passionate love he has for his fiancee. Marriage, the third song, celebrates the institution of marriage. The singer advises marital partners to tolerate the failings of each other. The prisoner, song number four, admonishes parents to protect their children from the seamy aspects of street life; he warns that children who roam the streets would end up in jail or prison. Song number five, Prince Ojong, is a panegyric honoring the producer of the new album. In song number six, I love you, the singer returns to the love theme that dominates this album. Les problemes, song number seven, relates the story of human problems and the mystery of life. Makossa Potomac, song number eight, is a reprise on love sequence. Maloka man, song number nine, reflects the self-absorption of the singer. Nostalgie, song number ten, harps on the singers alienation in America and homesickness. In all, this is a wonderful album.
