PRESS RELEASE

10th edition of the Pan African music festival with the International Music Council

10th edition of the Pan African music festival with the International Music Council

Version Francaise

A delegation from the Executive Board of the International Music Council took part in the 10th edition of the Pan African music festival in Brazzaville (Republic of Congo) which took place from July 18th to 22nd 2015 on the theme "The dynamics of African music in the diversity of cultural expressions".

The IMC has partnered with FESPAM since its beginnings in 1995 to accompany this African initiative in its development and conquest of international space; because FESPAM - as it was initially designed - met the IMC's goals of promoting cultural exchanges in a respectful and mutually appreciative way.

On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the festival, the IMC wished to recognise the crucial role that the President of the Republic of Congo, Denis Sassou Nguesso, never ceased to play in the promotion of culture in general and of music in particular. It is with this perspective in mind that the President of the Republic of Congo was awarded a goal medal by the International Music Council, through its President, Mr. Paul Dujardin. In his address, Mr. Dujardin stressed the unwavering support of the President of the Republic to the development of arts and to the FESPAM, non-only as a tool for strengthening cohesion, regional integration and international cooperation, but also as an ideal setting for supporting the creativity of young talents.
