Djidé “Mont-Kamerun” Koffa is a native of Cameroon, a country in Central Africa, that is also called Africa in miniature because Africa in terms of its beautiful landscapes and people is represented here. Born from the meeting between the deep forest and the Sahel, her music is the epic mixture of sounds as deep as the heart of the ocean and as dry as the sandy path of the desert. A Hausa and Ekang ambassador and a daughter of two kingdoms in Cameroon, she knows she represents much more than herself when she channels the ancestors and delivers their plea for a better world. Djidé stands for peace and unity among humans in any part of the world.
