Black Ants Always Fly Together, One Bangle Makes No Sound
Crammed Discs (7 May 2021)
The inspiration for this song comes from a village in the Sankuru province (Democratic Republic of the Congo). When there's a problem among the villagers, they look for a peaceful solution by performing a specific war dance, bearing weapons in their hands. It's a dance which used to signal the end of hostilities, and serve nowadays to solve conflicts

‘I sing about women's problems, I try to give them courage...and I will stop singing when the relations between men and women in Africa become problem free. But what African man doesn't have a mistress? In addition to a hard life, women have a lot to endure. I have a feminist duty to see they fight, that they defend themselves, that they hold their heads high, that they take independent women as examples...We must know how to say what we are, we African women, without fearing all the modernism we need to assimilate.’
