Les Amazones d’Afrique gets the presidential thumbs up by former President Obama
The former President Obama, posted a list of his favorite songs and books on his Facebook page. Among the list is a group called Les Amazones d’Afrique. The song entitled, ‘La Dame et Ses Valises’, a song meaning “The lady and her suitcases” is a socially conscience song, with the soft and intoxicating vibes like many neo-soul tracks. “During my presidency, I started a tradition of sharing my reading lists and playlists,” he wrote as an introduction to his list on the last day of 2017 on his page. ‘La Dame et Ses Valises’ is taken from Republique Amazone, the first album by Les Amazones d’Afrique, a group of 12 women from West Africa.
