Les Amazones d’Afrique

In a world music event, West Africa’s first all-female super group has formed in the fight against violence towards women.

Whether undisputed stars or well-kept secrets, this collective features some of the greatest Malian musicians of the moment: Mamani Keita, Rokia Koné, Mariam Doumbia, Awa Singho and Mariam Koné.

Inspired by the formidable warriors of Dahomey, Les Amazones d’Afrique elegantly combine the Mandingo tradition with the power of today’s African megacities. Fighting for freedom, for being female and for being a musician, these divas will break the chains and steal your heart.
