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

As part of our Celtic Connections season, Tramway is delighted to welcome 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)

The evening will begin with a special showcase programme featuring artists and groups from five Glasgow communities, presenting specially-created performances that celebrate the city’s contemporary diversity of cultural traditions. This showcase is the finale to a 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.
