Album of the Month

Album of the Month – November 2020

Star Feminine Band are an extraordinary group from Natitingou, a remote town in the north of Benin.  The 7 members are aged between 10 and 17 years old, and the only all girl band in Benin.

Their sound is a garage rock style mix of afrobeat,congolese rumba and traditional Beninese rhythm dances. The girls harmonies may sound youthful but their songs are raising awareness about equality and empowerment for African women to a curious growing audience.
