This event is part of the cycle "Sounds of Southern Africa - Music, Empowerement, Freedom", organised by IFAS Research (French Institute of South Africa) and IFAS Culture, with the support of the INSTITUT FRANÇAIS. In 2020, it will explore the various musical movements born in reaction to, or in resonance with the social and political realities of oppression, authoritarianism and colonisation.
