Le Mie Donne is the new album by pianist and composer Sade Mangiaracina.

Le mie donne is a tribute to women, through a gallery of portraits of female figures who with their
courage and strength have established themselves against discrimination, prejudices and common
feeling: from Rosa Parks to Amelia Hearheart, from Coco Chanel to Anna Frank, through Malala
Yousafzai, Rita Atria, Fida Kahlo and nobel prizewinner Aung San Suu Kyi.
Sade has composed and arranged all the tracks, that highlight her mediterranean soul in the context of

while guest spots are by saxophonist greg Osby, who has also written the liner notes (and produced for
his label Inner Circle Sades previous record, la Terra dei Ciclopi) and tunisian Ziad Trabelsi on Oud
and vocals on the track dedicated to Malala.
