Les Amazones D Afrique

Les Amazones D Afrique

More Info



The first all-female supergroup of West Africa, the collective Les Amazones d’Afrique brings together musicians fighting violence against women.
Whether they are undisputed stars or well-kept secrets, the musicians involved in this project are all among the most acclaimed voices in West African music: Kandia Kouyaté, Mamani Keita, Rokia Koné, Mariam Koné, and Aminata Danté (+ Nneka, Angélique Kidjo and Mariam Doumbia as special guests). The collective elegantly mixes generations and energies and perpetuates the Mandingo tradition by giving it the power of African megacities.
An «All-Star» you might think. Yes, but not only that. Inspired by the formidable and mysterious warriors of Dahomey, the greatest Malian singers and musicians of the moment come together to fight against violence towards women.
