Tamikrest // Dakar, Senegal // Music in Africa Conference
After their European tour, now the band is off to Dakar, Senegal!
The band’s performance is part of ACCES, a pan-African conference that will see players from around the world discuss the state of the music industry on the continent. ACCES is one of the Music In Africa Foundation’s offline activities, which also includes the Music In Africa Connects (MIAConnects) development project that focuses on the music scenes of African countries affected by conflict. One such country is Mali where Tamikrest was formed in 2006 and where ethnic clashes have seen many artists in the musically rich West African nation ostracised.
