Our first two Africa Network Meetings in 2018 and 2019 saw a high attendance and great interest from delegates coming from all continents, the third meeting goes virtual and we look forward for dynamic exchanges, especially around digital opportunities in and for Africa.

This network meeting is for all African delegates and artists AND for all WOMEXicans working with African music or wanting to find out more about the great dynamic, diversity, creativity and challenges of this vibrant continent. Meet and exchange to facilitate promotion and circulation of African music and music professionals with an highlight on digital issues.

Music In Africa is the leading information and exchange web portal dedicated to the African music sector. It is implemented by the Music In Africa Foundation which also leads developmental projects, including the yearly Acces conference, mobility funding, trading, and instrument building.
