Putumayo Presents : Women Of Africa

Women of Africa, the Putumayo collection features songs by leading female artists from throughout the African continent, the Women of Africa concert celebrates the importance of women in contemporary music of this culturally diverse region.

Women have always played an essential role in the preservation of African culture. From lullabies sung to sleepy children to chants of celebration, women are important bearers of tradition. Unlike some areas in the world where females are discouraged from taking part in public musical performance, in sub-Saharan Africa, music is an essential social activity for all members of the community. While many musical instruments are traditionally played exclusively by men, women often provide the voice of Africa’s music. This legacy carries over from traditional to contemporary music, and many of today’s most popular singers in Africa are women.

Women of Africa features Putumayo’s favorite songs by women from Algeria to Zimbabwe; the artists on Women of Africa represent a wide spectrum of today’s African music scene.
