Queens (feat. Rokia Koné)

Les Amazones d’Afrique

Taken from the album Amazones Power, out now.

‘Queens’ is a song of solidarity to the countless young women who face harsh realities from the beginning of married life. Rokia sings with wryness and tenderness, entreating each member of the extended family— on behalf of all women who are disrespected by their husbands, their co-wives, and their in-laws every day. These women have had to stay strong and resilient, but they are not alone; they are Queens.

Filmed by Aba Sangaré a.k.a. Le Dynozor and edited by Odhrán Mullan.
