About Yvonne Chaka Chaka

Yvonne’s personal messages are woven throughout every song she’s written. With musical beats that span afro-traditional to a world sound imbedded into several tracks, the power of the music equals the power of Yvonne’s clear social and spiritual advice to her audience.
“In this male dominated industry one has to wear stilettos and still have both feet firmly on the ground.”
