Healing the spirit of women is at the heart of the new Amazones d’Afrique’s single 'Amazones Power', a revolutionary song that frees speech and creates the space necessary for the construction of a different future in which no gender domination will hinder the place of women. Their first album was highly acclaimed by the press, and was listed as one of President Obama’s albums of the year for 2017. Using music as the means of change, the Les Amazones d’Afrique create a platform for infinite expression.
