In 2009, she represented  Cameroon at the Games of the Francophonie in Beyrouth,  at the first Commemoration of the end of the slavery at the United Nations and she was invited at the Sukiyaki Festival in Japan.

She won the prize Visa for creation of Cultures France and during her residence in France, she worked with Franois Kokelaere, musician and artistic director who founded and managed the Ensemble National des Percussions de Guinee ,From this meeting, a repertoire and a solo spectacle was born.

 In 2010, Karecye begins her collaboration with the management & Label Contre-Jour (Belgium)  & her first CD KWEGNE is released some months later.

Further this, Kareyce is touring in Europe in 2010 & 2011 in some prestigious places like Womad UK, Fesitval Musiques Metisses (Angoulme) , Tanksfolkfestival (Rudolstadt)

In 2011, Kareyce takes part to some concerts with Habib Koite like vocal guest

In 2012 & 2013, Kareyce is invited to participate to the project Acoustic Africa women voices with Dobet Gnahore & Manou Gallo. This project was touring in Africa, Europe and USA . Kareyce presented some of her songs and was singer and percussion or guitar player for the 2 others female artists. Her stage presence was just amazing thanks to her humor, sensuality and  generosity.2014 Release of her 2nd album MOKTE  produced with the nice collaboration of Franois Kokelaere & Gino Sitson and some other musicians invited as well.She will be now on the road with a guitar player for a show with always more emotions.A foot in her culture and the other one in a modern world, Kareyce Fotso is an African woman, full of life, charm, humor and real talent. A powerful voice, original, recognizable between others, tinted lightly by a vell of blues.A unique jewel in the constellation of the African stars.On stage, Kareyce rocks us with her pretty melodies followed by her guitar then gives her all in the songs. Suddenly, she flips in a more traditional Africa and plays a small lamellophone (sanza). She stands up to dance, janglers on her feet or followed by a wooden drum. She ends with a humoristic song in the purest spirit of the singer Zao.

Her concert is very personal, varied and catches a particular universe. We are under the charm of so much talent and spontaneity.
