NEW SIGNING: Les Amazones D’Afrique

We’re very delighted to announce we will be working with Les Amazones D’Afrique for their UK bookings in 2018.

The first all-female supergroup of West Africa, the collective Les Amazones d’Afrique, is an event for world music.

Whether they are undisputed stars or well-kept secrets, the musicians involved in this project are all among the most acclaimed voices in West African music: Kandia Kouyaté, Mamani Keita, Rokia Koné, Mariam Doumbia (of Amadou and Mariam), Nneka, Mariam Koné, Mouneïssa Tandina, Pamela Badjogo. The collective elegantly mixes generations and energies and perpetuates the Mandingo tradition by giving it the power of African megacities.

“A proud, forceful demonstration of the strength and variety of modern African music” – The Independent (UK)

“Storming set by all-star African supergroup”- Mojo (UK)

“Revolutionary, pancultural fervour from West African collective” – Q Magazine (UK)
