Don’t miss Sandra Nkaké live on the main stage at the Paris Jazz Festival

Sandra Nkaké

Sunday July 25 – 3:00 pm – Paris Jazz Festival

The title of Sandra’s current project, Mansaadi (“little mmama”), says it all. In this tribute to her late mother, this diva from Cameroun runs the gamut of human emotions, as seen through the prism of femininity. The term “diva” may not be fitting for someone who started out as an insecure teenager, but it rightly becomes the insightful actress (Sandra has a dozen films to her credit) and queenly vocalist who tackles jazz, soul and funk with equal ease, delivering sensuous snapshots of life with grace and boundless energy.

Le titre du projet musical de Sandra, Mansaadi (“petite mère”) est explicite. À travers cet hommage à une mère disparue trop tôt, la diva franco-camerounaise parcourt la palette des émotions humaines telles que les ressent la femme. Le mot « diva » convient sans doute mal à l’adolescente anxieuse qu’elle a été, mais il est amplement mérité par une actrice (Sandra possède plus d’une douzaine de films à son actif) et chanteuse qui s’approprie jazz, soul et funk en interprétant avec grâce et fougue des vignettes existentielles aussi directes que sensuelles.
