Piranha Arts/Atlantic Music Expo

The second edition of Atlantic Music Expo in April 2014 established Praia as the ideal platform for s vibrant transatlantic cultural exchange around day and night showcases, conferences, workshops, one-to-one meetings and a street trade fair.

From practical workshops to exchanges about creolisation, from crowded Urban Music stage to intimate daycase slots, AME is the perfect meeting point for all the movers and shakers from Africa and all sides of the Atlantic and for all delegates interested in those musical traditions or modern productions;

The next edition will take place in Praia from 6 to 9 April 2015 right before the Kriol Jazz Festival.

Come to the presentation and find out more!
