Les Amazones D’Afrique: A Virtual Live Performance

Celebrated West African supergroup Les Amazones d'Afrique combines international stars, local heroes and up-and-coming musicians in this special broadcast performance.

Formed in Mali in 2014, this all female collective deliver electric live performances bringing African kora playing together with R&B, rap and reggae styles sung in Bambara, French and English. 

Les Amazones d’Afrique take a fierce, feminist approach to their music, addressing issues faced by women all around the world. Their second album Amazones Power combines social activism with energetic harmonies, tackling topics including misogyny, forced marriage and the barbaric practice of female genital mutilation through their hard hitting lyrics.  

In honour of the tour they will be unable to embark on this year, the Amazones deliver a bright, energetic live show for audiences to enjoy on our YouTube channel.
