Faadah Kawtal, initially named Kawtal, is one
of the few bands from the North of Cameroon, more precisely from the town of
Garoua, which happens also to be the place of birth of Ali Baba.
Soon after its creation, the band moved to Douala as makossa star Tom Yom's
promised to help them record a first album. Although this didn't materialise,
they stayed in Douala and they performed at the Phaco Club. In 1993, they won an award, in
1995 their music featured in a movie Le maître des éléphants
by Patrick Grandperret. In the following years, two cassettes were recorded.
