Acclaimed artist and activist Maya Azucena introduces her soul-rousing single “Fearless”, inspired by the woman’s warrior spirit and a tribute to the women of “BeadforLife” in Uganda. The song also celebrates the launch of the MAZU Collection, Azucena’s signature line of handmade jewelry, in collaboration with BeadforLife. “Fearless”, produced in Paris by DAVIDO, “is a reflective song of empowerment for all women and is inspired by the women I met in Uganda earlier this year,” Maya states. It compliments the overall message of her MAZU Collection: “Be the Fearless You.”
