“And so Les Amazones d’Afrique were born…”

A collective of female stars including Angélique Kidjo, Mariam Doumbia and Nneka is singing out against gender inequality in west Africa over a soundtrack of funk, blues and dub

“Their name a homage both to the Dahomey Amazons, women warriors who roamed modern-day Benin for the better part of 200 years, protecting west African borders, and the first all-female pop music group in Guinea, Les Amazones de Guinée.”

The Guardian
