BEMIS presents Les Amazones d’Afrique & Special Guests with Celtic Connections in the Community

Celtic Connections 2020

This main performance features the truly awe-inspiring Les Amazones d’Afrique, an all-female supergroup of acclaimed West African singers dedicated to ending women’s inequality and oppression, whose founders include Mariam Doumbia (of Amadou & Mariam) and Angélique Kidjo. “A proud, forceful demonstration of the strength and variety of modern African music” (Independent)

As a showcase finale to our new Celtic Connections in the Community programme (a partnership with BEMIS, Scotland’s support body for the ethnic minority voluntary sector, backed by UNISON and the Scottish Government), festival artists and groups from five Glasgow communities will present specially-created performances, celebrating the city’s contemporary diversity of cultural traditions. Find out more and apply to participate here.
