Discussion

Music is a language that transcends borders. But do both sides profit from European­African music collaborations? Do international music projects expand audiences? And how can German-African music cooperations foster intercultural understanding? Guy One and Max Weissenfeldt (Ghana/Germany) as well as Tlale Makhene (South Africa) will talk about their musical collaborations. The Partnership with Africa Foundation will present other successful German-African music partnerships.

Moderation: Stefanie Alisch
