This Women's Month we celebrate the top local and international female artists on Deezer who inspire, enthral and entertain us with their music.

With Deezer, the best music is just a finger tap away. Whether they are be sending shivers down our spines with the immense power of their voices, participating in political activism through musical protest, or breaking down barriers in the music industry, women artists throughout history have been inspiring us through their words, sounds and actions. 

South African artists are no exception. From world-famous civil rights activists like Miriam Makeba, fusion pioneers like Claire Johnston and the 'Queen of African pop' Brenda Fassie, women have played an integral role in creating the sound of South Africa. 

Let's take a look at the most downloaded local and international female artists on Deezer.
