Roland Tchakounté’s music is full of wild melodies, sadness and happiness, sometimes loneliness.

Roland Tchakounté released his debut album titled “Bred Bouh Shuga Blues” in 1999, and “Abango” in 2005, “Waka” in 2008 and latest album “Blues Menessen” in May of this year.

Along with his partners Mick Ravassat (guitar) and Mathias Bernheim (percussion), he has many performances in Germany, Belgium, Spain, Japan, Canada, USA, Guinea, the Republic of Mali, Indonesia, Vietnam, Scotland, Croatia, etc.

He came to Hanoi and performed in the European Music Festival in 2008.
