After more than 200 concerts, she offers the public a second album. The same sobriety as on Mispa is present, but with an extra touch of maturity. This album, tinged with emotion, takes us on a journey through the melodies, a clever mix of traditional music, jazz and acoustics with lyrics in Douala, Bakaka and French. At the turn of a title, we have the beautiful surprise to find Richard BONA in duet as well as Jacob DESVARIEUX, the famous singer of Kassav. If we linger on the album cover, we have the joy of discovering another collaboration, that of Lokua KANZA who wrote the song Kumb'élolo. "Dube L'am" tells beautiful stories. "Dube L'am", which means "my faith", translates Charlotte's convictions and all those things she believes in. This naivety that she always sees the best in others.
Charlotte Dipanda always looks at us straight on her third album. This symbolic evolution is reflected in the new songs and in the artistic approach of the Cameroonian singer, who has already won the hearts of her compatriots.
Through the ten songs of Massa, the young woman establishes a direct dialogue, does not hesitate to take a stand to talk about her country, and also expresses her bitterness on Elle n'a pas vu, which evokes her grandmother who is so present in her.
For this new project, her openness towards her native continent and the cultures that come from it is reflected in the choice of her collaborators: the Cape Verdean "Nando" (Fernando Andrade) who worked for Cesaria Evora for a long time, the guitarists Hervé Samb from Senegal and OlivierTshimanga from Congo or the Brazilian percussionist Zé Luis Nascimento.
