AFRICA, CRADLE AND FUTURE OF MUSIC
The African music scene is vibrant and inspiring, as rich as it is creative. And yet artists from Africa and the Middle East lack international visibility.
It is from this paradox that in 2014 Visa For Music was born, the first professional music market and festival in Africa and the Middle East.
Visa For Music is a unique event that brings together the actors of the Moroccan and international music industry.
Visa For Music showcases the musicians and artistic creation of the continent. They are also conferences, speed-meetings, workshops, and training sessions to multiply encounters and open the field of possibilities.
Visa For Music is every year for four days the pulse of Rabat “City of Light and Moroccan Capital of Culture” which lives to the rhythm of the music.
