Tim (aka Jean Marie Tiam) and the sadly departed Maurice Foty, who died in 2011, are musical cousins who hail from Bafoussam in Cameroon. Their signature vocal harmony sound may be the first thing you hear, however they also have produced a host of the funkiest African funk around. They sing in their native language Ngomâlah, as well as Duala and English.
