The book La chanson camerounaise : Langue(s) et style(s) is a collection of articles that explores linguistic and stylistic features of Cameroon music. The book is divided into three sections. The first section contains articles that have the main focus on discourse features; the section two deals mainly with stylistic issues and the last section describes the sociolinguistics characteristics that Cameroon music industry portrays. It should be reminded that the Cameroon is a melting pot of diverse languages, cultures and ethnic-tribes. Cameroon is also a melting pot of diverse artistically woven rhythms inscribed in the domain of ethnomusicology and spiced with modern symphonic rhythms. These rhythms range from popular brands like Makossa and Bikutsi to less popular ones.
