Les Tetes Brulees is a group from Cameroon. Their music blends traditional influences from their home country with European styles (French notably in flavor) in a melding of jazz, rock and African. They use lots of pecussion, horn and reed and bass & guitar in modern style. As heard in their second album, Bikutsi Rock, they also use the western African custom of male a capella.
They have recorded in Paris and toured the globe widely. Their sound is driving and infectious. As described in the New York Times, by Jon Pareles, “The music is dizzyingly exuberant…”
