Abidjan was treated to a feast of female singers from around the continent last night – in celebration of International Women’s day today.
With this year’s theme as ‘inspiring change’, the concert was about showcasing women artists and fostering new talent.
It was the penultimate night of the MASA festival, a week long extravaganza of music, stand-up comedy, dance, story-telling and theatre. It has returned to Ivory Coast after a seven year hiatus during the civil conflict.
The BBC’s Tamasin Ford was there. To listen to this report, please click on this link.
