Musiques de Côte d'Ivoire

The early nineties saw the rise of a new cosmopolitan dance music style in Abidjan, mainly introduced by Meiway. This new style, Zoblazo, entered the dance floor in many African countries, and is characterized by a simple up tempo rhythm and high tech instrumentation. The chorus lines may seem a bit sweet for European ears, but Meiway's music guarantees a hell of a party!

Born: 17 March 1962, as Fréderic-Désiré Ehui in Grand-Bassam.
Style: Zoblazo.
Album cover 'Les génies vous parlent'
