Madjo

folk // soul // french vocal

French-Senegalese chanteuse Madjo first captured my attention with “Le Monstre” back in 2009 making her debut album Trapdoor (2010) among my most anticipated albums of the year. While there is very little information about Madjo available to English speakers, she’s the new chanteuse on the rise among French music lovers. Madjo’s repertoire varies from vintage pop influences to Southern folk-blues and tender ballads, somewhat recalling Feist, Yael Naim and Okou with the subtle avant-garde touch of Camille. Une chanteuse extraordinnaire!

From acoustic simplicity to multi-layered beauty.

    why do you call her french senegalese? this singer is French. just because she has a little black (senegalese) doesnt make her senegalese.

  5. Catherine Holder :

    OMG, she is ADORABLE! I LOVE her voice, like a French Corinne Bailey Rae or Adele! I don’t speak a WORD of French, and this album is just fantastic! Guess this shows how good music is just transcendent! You guys rock:)
