ABOUT ME

Nee en France au debut des annees 80, Danielle Eog est une artiste plurielle a la culture metisse.
c'est a l'adolescence qu'elle decouvre l'Afrique et son pays le Cameroun. Ce retour vers la source de ses origines ancestrales a permis aussi a la jeune femme d'aller vers la connaissance de son etre profond et de son identite : CITOYENNE DE L'UNIVERS..
Ancienne choriste de Manu Dibango, Gino Sitson et LesNubians,
elle est la porteuse d'une musique dont le but est de reconcilier le coeur et le corps sur un fond de soul et de jazz enrichi des langues de chez elle: Bassa,Bulu et Ewondo.

"Bees and Butterflies"
Danielle: With vocal improvised in studio on a sunny tropical afternoon, Bees and Buterflies is the story of a flower that sings her gratitude and love to life. The flower is thankful for the bees and butterflies that come to flirt with her, and for the sun and the stars that reflects their beauty on her. Bees and Butterflies is a joyous call to reconnection with nature and its vegetal reign. it is written in “bulu” language, which is a language and tribe from South Cameroon. Sasha: With this song I had a bliss.... The picture of sunny day outside in the fields of green grass and all the flies and bees and butterflies immediately came to an idea of sound imitation of this picture "Z-z-z" and "J-j-j..." and when the clearly defined music phrase came in - I've heard exactly the chords you can hear now as well... It's a beautiful, hopeful and very brightening ode to life in all it's little and big forms, and the joy of being, and... being grateful to our beautiful "mother earth" that provides us with all that.

Ngweha
Danielle: "Ngweha" (love in Bassa language) is basically an a capella song fruit of a total improvisation in studio. Realized in a process of free creation, where the harmonies were created and entangled as the inspiration went up, this song is an ode to the recognition of the need of love that resides in each one of us, this is a célébration of our natural ability to share that universal love with joy and abundance. Sasha: The hypnotizing, “shamanic” nature of Danielle’s song and her powerful voice inspired me for looking for special colors and unusual rhythmical patterns, in order to create “magic” supportive sonic environment. The song is minimalistic, so I carefully chose every part, not to distract focus form the “mantra”.
