Limited Edition on Turquoise color Vinyl

This all-star, all-female collective of West African musicians has united in a common cause: freedom and equal rights for women, and an end to violence against them. The project includes some of the most influential artists in West Africa today, both undisputed stars and emerging young talents, including Angelique Kidjo, Mamani Keita, Mariam Doumbia (of Amadou and Mariam), Kandia Kouyaté, and more. With varied musical roots, their music's distinctive character draws from both homogeneity and contrast - from Malian rock to blues, reggae and soul - with producer Liam Farrell (aka Doctor L) injecting something otherworldly and kinetic into the mix.

République Amazone is the sound of the diaspora of African music returning home, a reclaiming outside of genre and time. As much at home on the dancefloors of east London, or as part of an Awesome Tapes from Africa festival set in Croatia, as it would be ringing out of a cement brick house in Bamako, it showcases the sparkling range and versatility of its songstresses.
