LES AMAZONES D'AFRIQUE
Wednesday June 2 Røkeriet
Soul, breath and change!
Never before has activism grooved so intensely! The super-collective Les Amazones d'Afrique takes the leading West African vocalists on the road in the fight against violence against women and oppression, and for equal rights. The band was started by Mamani Keïta, Oumou Sangaré and Mariam Doumbia in Mali in 2014, but has since then involved artists from all over the continent - including Angélique Kidjo.
Musically, they mix a pan-African kongotronics style with rough pop aesthetics, on stage the vocal harmonies are ultra-precise, the music ultra-funky and the message relentless.
