Fadya et le Chant de la Rivière
Illustrated by Amélie-Anne Calmo
Between the deserts of Mali and the rivers of Mauritania is a song known only to Africa itself. It is a song that can be heard every day, as long as the wind isn't blowing too hard.
It is the song of the Luminaries, a group of women with powerful magic wearing long golden dresses.
Fadya is the youngest of the Luminaries and on her journey, she will encounter and help two fishermen who have inadvertently awaken the wrath of the Goddess of the river.
Fadya and the song of the river is a wonderful journey inspired by traditional African tales.
