- Supergroup that combines rhythms and harmonies with social protests

Founded in Mali, Les Amazones d'Afrique has evolved into a source of bubbling creativity, soulful music and social protest, as well as a musical collective setting a new agenda for female musicians in Africa and the African diaspora.

The group was formed ten years ago by renowned artists Mamani Keïta, Oumou Sangaré and Mariam Doumbia with the aim of giving voice and opportunity to African women and creating a better gender balance in cultural life.

Their clear social message is lifted by strong vocal harmonies and an infectious pan-African music that combines traditional music forms with modern pop and electronic rhythms and the kongotronix style. On their latest album "Musow Danse" they have enlisted the help of producer Jacknife Lee (U2, Modest Mouse, Taylor Swift) to create a sound inspired by modern hip hop, trap and electronica.
