AFRICA - THE NEW MUSIC FRONTIER, OPEN FOR BUSINESS

06-Jun-2018, 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM

Worldwide Village
Language:
English

At a time when the world’s attention is focused on Africa producing the next wave of global superstars, and with the increased number of tech devices and more accessible internet across Africa, the music scene has generated a record number of sales, discoveries, employment, and global recognitions. The success of artists like Davido, Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, Fuse ODG, Maleek Berry, and Mr Eazi on the world stage has shown that African is ready to compete globally. 


This panel will discuss the growing global recognition of African music and how African music professionals can start to engage on world platforms. It will explore whether Africa should use the American/European model to exploit its artists globally, or if there should be an African strategy to transport indigenous music around the globe.
