Les Amazones d’Afrique is an all-female collective of west African musicians campaigning for gender equality. They have one clear mission: using music as a trigger for change and as a weapon to address the systematic disempowerment of women across Africa. Their latest album République Amazone blends ancient rhythms seamlessly over funk and blues with dabs of dub. Tracks are sang intermittently in English, French and Mandinka, and tackle love, oppression and female empowerment.
