This edition breathes new life. From November 20 to 23 , Visa For Music recorded a record attendance in Rabat: more than 1000 music professionals from 70 countries including 25 African countries. Among them were many women artists such as Soukaina Fahsi from Morocco, Les Insoumises and Sophia Charaï, the Palestinian Rasha Nahas, Algerian Samira Brahmia, Ugandan Sandra Nakouma, Belgians Germaine Kobo & Bella Lawson, Senegalese Aida Samb, Mozambican Isabel Novella or Zimbabwean Edith Weutonga.
This incredible platform for artists and cultural actors has also organized more than fifty showcases, seven lectures and three workshops, not to mention the hundreds of speedmeetings. Major international markets were also present, such as the Abidjan Arts and Entertainment Market, the Johannesburg Moshito, the East African Performing Arts Market DOADOA in Kampala, WOMEX (Norway) and Seoul Music Week (South Korea).
In short, it was a unifying and unique event with 90% of concerts scheduled at Visa For Music are not played elsewhere, as the organization proudly states in a statement, pointing out that the festival reserves many discoveries of artists still little known and participates in the renewal of the national and international music scene. Thus, each edition offers new opportunities for the present artists.
