Les Amazones d'Afrique is a creative force that
embraces international voices; sweet, strong
harmonies that summon the rights of women and
girls; and a meltdown of heritage and new gen talent. They were formed in Bamako, Mali, in 2014 by three
renowned Malian music stars and social change
activists - Mamani Keïta, Oumou Sangaré and Mariam
Doumbia - and the collective has since expanded to
involve many female artists from across Africa and the
diaspora. ? While their cause - campaigning for gender equality
and eradicating ancestral violence - is worthy enough
in itself, their musical creative expression is equally
powerful. Richly melodic and far-ranging, it blends
pan-African styles and collaborative harmonies with
gritty, contemporary pop and the Congotronix-style
production of legendary producer Doctor L (aka Liam
Farrell). ? Their debut album, ‘République Amazone', featured
guest contributions from the likes of Angélique Kidjo
and Nigerian singer-songwriter Nneka and caught the
attention of President Obama, who included one of the
songs in his 20 favourite tracks of 2017. In 2020 they
release their follow-up album ‘Amazones Power', on
which familiar voices like Mamani Keïta and Rokia
Koné appear alongside a younger generation of
singers who represent the exciting new sound of
modern Africa.
