Un pont entre l’Afrique et l’Europe -

Modestine Ekete fusionne les genres

Figure de la communauté camerounaise au Luxembourg, Modestine Ekete présente son premier album, Zing Ndada. Un titre en langue Yemba qui signifie pas à pas.

C’est un premier opus qui invite au voyage. Originaire du Cameroun et installée au Luxembourg depuis 2005, Modestine Ekete brasse ses influences musicales et métisses les instruments de son Afrique natale aux sonorités contemporaines. Un album hétéroclite, à l’image de cette artiste multidisciplinaire qui défend la diversité culturelle de l’Afrique, de son enfance en pays bamiléké del’ouest camerounais à son arrivée au Grand-duché.

Chanteuse, comédienne, chorégraphe, Modestine jongle avec les arts comme d’autres manipulent des massues. Plus qu’un album de world music, Zing Ndada est une oeuvre à la fois sociale, artistique et spirituelle. Sur scène, Modestine traite les thèmes qui lui tiennent à coeur. Il est à la fois question de protection de l’environnement, des droits des femmes, de la protection de l’enfance, del’intégration des jeunes ou plus simplement de l’Amour.

Pour justifier sa démarche, Modestine insiste sur le devoir de transmission des artistes. Une action à la fois artistique, sociale et spirituelle qu’elle souhaite diffuser auprès de tous les publics. Formée et nourrie par les arts du spectacle, elle n’hésite pas à intervenir auprès des jeunes pour partager son expérience. «Nous avons pour mission de transmettre des valeurs, nos expériences, des connaissances, des cultures», explique-t-elle.

Zing Ndada est un album sur le fil, un disque Оvoluant constamment entre traditions africaines et sonorités contemporaines. Auteure, compositrice et productrice, Modestine a enregistré les titres de son disque au Studio BAMHAUS (Lux) et au Studio de WolmОrange (F). Elle y cultive un style afrobeat aux sons colorés grâce aux collaborations avec des artistes de cultures différentes. Zing Ndada se révèle alors dans toute sa complexité. Un opus résolument libre, nourri des différences de ses musiciens.

A bridge between Africa and Europe -

Modestine Ekete merges the genres

Figure of the Cameroonian community in Luxembourg, Modestine Ekete presents her first album, Zing Ndada. A title in Yemba language that means step by step.

This is a first opus that invites to travel. Originally from Cameroon and settled in Luxembourg since 2005, Modestine Ekete mixes her musical influences and mixes the instruments of her native Africa with contemporary sounds. A heteroclite album, like this multidisciplinary artist who defends the cultural diversity of Africa, from his childhood in Bamileke country of western Cameroon when she arrived in the Grand Duchy.

Singer, actress, choreographer, Modestine juggles with the arts as others manipulate clubs. More than a world music album, Zing Ndada is a work that is at once social, artistic and spiritual. On stage, Modestine deals with the themes that are close to her heart. It is at the same time a matter of protecting the environment, women's rights, child protection, the integration of young people or, more simply, love.

To justify his approach, Modestine insists on the duty of transmission of artists. An artistic, social and spiritual action that it wishes to spread to all audiences. Trained and nourished by the performing arts, she does not hesitate to intervene with young people to share her experience. "Our mission is to transmit values, our experiences, knowledge, cultures," she explains.

Zing Ndada is an album on the wire, a disc constantly evolving between African traditions and contemporary sounds. Author, composer and producer, Modestine recorded the titles of her record at Studio BAMHAUS and Studio Wolmerange. She cultivates a Afrobeat style with colorful sounds thanks to collaborations with artists from different cultures. Zing Ndada reveals itself in all its complexity. A resolutely free opus, fed by the differences of its musicians.
