Visa For Music (VFM), lounge music of Africa and the Middle East, is an unprecedented event. The project arises from a paradox: on one hand, the lack – or absence – of visibility of artists from Africa and the Middle East and abroad, on the other the presence of an artistic dynamism and yet an extremely rich musical creation.
Therefore, the Visa For Music first mission is to showcase artists from Africa and the Middle East, mainly in world music and contemporary music.
Visa For Music is an unmissable event for music professionals at large, whoever they are and wherever they come from, and wants to be a platform of exchange for the defense and promotion of music industry of Africa and the Middle East.
In two years, Visa For Music has established itself as the first market for contemporary music in Africa.
In summary, Visa For Music, it’s six main tasks:
Promote the music of Africa and the Middle East around the world
Encourage artistic mobility between African countries and the Middle East
Promote the development of national cultural industries
Develop the music scene in the region on an international level
Contribute to the improvement of the condition of South artists
Strengthen North-South and South-South in the cultural sector
