Ntjam is her African name, Rosie her European one. And with that, it becomes instantly clear which musical mix Ntjam Rosie will perform on stage. When she was nine, she came to Holland from Cameroon and grew up in Maastricht. She now resides in jazz city Rotterdam and is mentioned in the same breath as Dutch soul talents Giovanca and Sabrina Starke. On Ntjam Rosie's first album, Atouba, both Western and African rhythms can be heard and she sings with her soulful voice in Dutch, French and Bulu, a language from Cameroon. Her second album Elle contains more jazz, but also traces of the seventies soul of Stevie Wonder and George Duke. One of her major sources of inspiration is Erykah Badu, for whom she was once the supporting act.
