Two musicians from Germany were able to perform within the framework of this year's edition of the Jazz festival „Ya-Jazz". Saxophonist Reiner Witzel was invited by the Goethe-Institut Kamerun while the German Embassy invited the drum set player Benedikt Stehle.
Together with André Nkouaga (bass guitar) and the Cameroonian musicians Venant Ntiomo (percussions), Dietmar Ntakou (piano) and Marcien Oyono (guitar), they spontaneously built an orchestra which was able to enthrall the public during four concerts in Douala and Yaounde despite a very limited rehearsal time of only a few hours.

Gemeinsam mit den kamerunischen Musikern André Nkouaga (Bassgitarre), Venant Ntiomo (Perkussion), Dietmar Ntakou (Piano) und Marcien Oyono (Gitarre) bildete sich spontan eine Band, die trotz einer begrenzten Probezeit von wenigen Stunden vier Konzerte in Douala und Jaunde darboten, die das Publikum begeisterten.
