Latest news »New album by Les Amazones d'Afrique

Les Amazones d'Afrique, a newly-formed collective of west African musicians campaigning for gender equality, will release a new LP on Real World Records called République Amazone on 10 March 2017.

The album will feature contributions from Angélique Kidjo, Kandia Kouyaté, Mamani Keita, Mariam Doumbia, Mariam Koné, Massan Coulibaly, Mouneissa Tandina, Nneka, Pamela Badjogo and Rokia Koné.

République Amazone is the sound of the diaspora of African music returning home, a reclaiming outside of genre and time. As much at home on the dancefloors of east London, or as part of an Awesome Tapes from Africa festival set in Croatia, as it would be ringing out of a cement brick house in Bamako, it showcases the sparkling range and versatility of its songstresses.

The album will be available on vinyl, CD and digitally (via iTunes).

Listen to 'I Play The Kora', featuring all of the vocalists mentioned above:
