Our mission is to bring Africa and Spain closer
Through outreach, educational, economic, and cultural activities, we foster mutual understanding and strengthen Hispanic African relations.
Casa África, in collaboration with AECID, SGAE and the Spanish Embassy in Ethiopia, is once again setting into motion this great opportunity for African musicians.
It consists of the third edition of a meeting (the first one took place in Dakar in 2010 and the second one in Cape Verde last year) between African musicians and Spanish producers for improving knowledge about African music on an international level.
The procedure to participate in the meeting is for all the groups to register at the Ethiopia Vis a Vis website. The groups selected will have the opportunity to meet and present their work to Spanish producers at special business meetings, as well as to perform live at the best establishments in the city of Addis Ababa.
The two groups selected by Spanish producers will be able to perform in Spain at the fourth edition of Africa Vive 2012.
All the groups interested in participating must register before January 22nd at the www.ethiopiavisavis.com website and include their music, photographs, videos, biography, news articles and anything they believe to be helpful for the producers to become more familiar with them. The bands selected will perform live in front of the Spanish producers, who will travel to Ethiopia from the 2th to the 5th of February 2012 to meet directly with the groups of their interest, hold business meetings, and watch them perform live.
