All compositions by Jean Nkodo Ferouze Darouiche Publ. by ENJA (GEMA).

The Voodoo Gang are three brothers from Cameroon (with a muslim kurd father and a christian Cameroonian mother), who make magic by a music that mixes the ancient and the modern. The instrumentation and vocals are fully acoustic and African, but the texture of compositions and the presentation, the playing and lyrics are for our time and space. It’s contemporary folk: The voodoo for today !
