Mothers' Garden - The Funky Sounds Of Female Africa 1975 - 1984. Available here on LP.
Africa’s most recognised female artists and some lesser known. A way to highlight the incredible, yet under-acknowledged musical contribution that African women have given to the funky sounds of Africa. Taking our cue from the Alice Walker essay “In Search of Our Mothers’ Gardens”, the creative sparks that inspired this collection of songs were formed in their Mothers’ Gardens by Mothers who paved the way for their daughters to keep the creativity of black women alive through their strength and resilience. Whilst we have a bit more of a message with this one, we wouldn’t be Africa Seven if it wasn’t damn funky at the same time!
