50% of the artists on the 6th edition of Visa For Music are women! A beautiful representation that is not the result of chance since the organization of this event makes it a point of honor to defend parity, especially this year!

Women are in the spotlight at Visa For Music. Indeed, half of the artists programmed during this 6th edition are women. Five women’s voices will open the festivities at the Mohammed V National Theater in Rabat.

Organized in partnership with SACEM Society of Authors, Composers and Music Publishers, this evening is simply placed under the sign of femininity. On stage, Moroccan artists Jaylann and Soukaina Fahsi, French Natacha Atlas, Angolan Lúcia de Carvalho (Angola) and Mozambican Isabel Novella. Another woman in the spotlight is Rania Elias, the director of the Yabous Cultural Center in Jerusalem who will receive an award for her commitment and work for the preservation of Palestinian cultural expressions.

In addition to this cultural personality, Visa For Music will also pay tribute to Professor Abdel Benabdeljalil, renowned musicologist and author of numerous publications, to Melaku Belay, dancer-choreographer-musician and director of the Fendika Cultural Center in Addis Ababa, as listed by the organizers in a statement, stating that a special moment will also be devoted to the late Hassan Megri to recall his rich legacy.
