Cameroon-based Myra Maimoh generates an authentic sound, exhibiting all the trademarks of Afro-pop, including African folk and American jazz influences. “Dear Daddy” is a good example of what she can do in a catchy song that makes socio-political comparisons about the past vs. present-day unrest, war, etc. The song is seasoned and spiced with trademark Caribbean/Latin guitar, call-and-response vocals and African percussion. Maimoh shows her gospel vitality in the celebratory “Hallelujah,” sharing the mic with a male singer for a danceable call-and-response duet. Ultimately, we come away with a sense that Maimoh herself should be an even more powerful, central force in her recordings.
