Africa is a continent that is already feeling the effects of climate change. African women, who in some countries produce up to 80% of the food, are the ones who are taking the most steps to alleviate these effects.
The Women For Africa Foundation (Mujeres por África), chaired by Maria Teresa Fernandez de la Vega, wishes to help make these initiatives by women more visible and appreciated, thus showing these women’s true leading role within them and as spokespeople for the fight against climate change. To this end, it has launched its “Green Voices” (Voces Verdes) project, which will be carried out in Tanzania, a country that is particularly involved in this challenge.
To accompany and highlight the aims of this project with her music, the singer-songwriter Luz Casal has written the song that bears the programme’s name, Green Voices, and has donated it to Women For Africa.
The piece, whose vocal section was recorded in Dar es Salaam by a chorus of ten Tanzanian women, was presented last November in Madrid during the annual event that the Foundation has held, chaired by HM the Queen with the participation of the President of Liberia, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, and other eminent African women leaders.
We thank Luz Casal for her generosity and commitment, which have given its Green Voices project an exceptional soundtrack.
