Professional and international (speed-)meetings are organized on the occasion of the Focus on Popular Music set up by Institut Français and MaMA.
About twenty international professionals (including agents, local promoters, bookers from festivals or concert venues, labels, etc…) are invited to take part in MaMA within the framework of this Focus, to discover the French music scene and French music sector.
Coming from the whole African continent, these professionals –identified jointly by Institut Français and OIF as part of the Equation Musique Programme, and in partnership with Saison Sud-Africaine- will participate to these meetings. MaMA French and international participants will thus be able to establish direct dialogue with them, that may lead to further collaborations.

Pre-registrations are now closed. We are currently working on a selection and matching with the received applications. Please notice that your participation will  be valid only if you receive a confirmation e-mail.

Saison Sud-Africaine

South Africa Seasons 2012 & 2013 is an initiative in tribute to the fights for freedom and to the choice of reconciliation that has been made upon the concept of racial division by many South Africans and, among them, by their most prominent representative - former President Nelson Mandela. From May to December 2013, Saison Sud-Africaine offers an overview of South Africa nowadays to the French audience - that is to say, a young and flourishing democracy that is still healing its past wounds after decades of oppression, and that keeps struggling day after day to keep its position among the emerging countries.
