Amazones Power

Les Amazones d’Afrique

Following the success of their debut album République Amazone in 2017, Les Amazones d’Afrique are back to sing and fight for the cause of women. ‘Amazones Power’ features great voices from West Africa merged with their Afro-Cuban allies, along with the urban tones of a young generation as singular in its creativity as it is committed to the wealth of their heritage. They use the power of music to call for a revolution.

Featured singers: Aminata Drame (Nakou), Dourane Fall, Magueye Diouk, Valérie Belinga, Marta Domingo, Niariu, Patricia Essong, Kandy Guira, Moesha13, Fafa Ruffino, Abby Surya, Nancy Murillo, Valérie Tribord, Roselyne Belinga, Nacera Ouali, Mamani Keïta, Sara Petit.
