All-star, all-female collective of West African musicians unites in a common cause
"Noble causes seldom generate music as exuberant as the stuff on Republique Amazone.
- LOS ANGELES TIMES
"While the melodies and grooves are undeniable party-starters... Les Amazones d’Afrique’s message is deeply political"
- ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
"There's no mistaking the talent and vision these spectacular vocalists share. Bring this party of musician-activists into your home and there's a good chance you'll want to get to know them individually."
"Joyous and defiant"
-SONGLINES, TOP OF THE WORLD
Available on Real World Records, this all-star, all-female collective of West African musicians has united in a common cause: freedom and equal rights for women, and an end to violence against them. The project includes some of the most influential artists in West Africa today, both undisputed stars and emerging young talents, including Angelique Kidjo, Mamani Keita, Mariam Doumbia (of Amadou and Mariam), Kandia Kouyaté, and more. With varied musical roots, their music’s distinctive character draws from both homogeneity and contrast — from Malian rock to blues, reggae and soul — with producer Liam Farrell (aka Doctor L) injecting something otherworldly and kinetic into the mix.
Available on CD, LP and Digital.
