Plaza Franco – The Aunties

July 18 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Plaza Franco, summer in rhythm!

From June 27th to August 15th, your Thursdays transform into must-attend evenings in the heart of the city. Join us every week at Plaza Franco for musical aperitifs under the sun’s rays. Located in the courtyard of the Maison de la francophonie, at Bastion Square, it’s the perfect place to dance to the rhythms of the Francophone scene. Admission is free, with a bar ready to serve you and a delicious menu available. This season, it’s all happening at Plaza Franco!


🎵 Musical Performance – The Aunties🎵

This is the story of 9 Chadian women, resilient heroines of society. On a daily basis, they are: shopkeepers, businesswomen, housewives, bili bili (local drink) makers. A “historic” turning point for Chad.

Spotted for their talent and their stories, the Tantines of N’Djamena are not afraid of words and breaking the silence. Art and music are a way for them to transcend their experiences, a journey of fighting women who have taken charge of their lives, alone.

Les Aunties, in addition to the artistic project, also take concrete action to inform and set an example (thanks in particular to the training received via the project) in the handling of tools essential to women’s empowerment: capital management, savings, bank accounts, mobile money.

Beyond the power of words and music, the Aunties are launching an international women’s movement in their own image.
