Upcoming events

I tried to use an iCalendar (you can see it on the right side of the page) but it doesn´t work so well : the hours are wrong even though my calendar shows the write time on other websites and it´s a bit of a pain to make updates here, sometimes some of the events don´t appear, so once or twice per week, I´ll post some events of interest connected to Asia and Africa and a few more.
There will be some big events and festivals later this and next month in Berlin, Oslo, Tokyo, Kobe and Kyoto, I will soon add them.
If you see something important missing, feel free to contact me.

CTM Festival 2016 : New geographies


Music is now more than ever integrated into the global circulation of ideas, knowledge, people and commodities. Musicians everywhere have increasing access to digital resources that revolutionize music making and distribution. Internet and telecommunications intensify exchanges across existing cultural boundaries. At the same time, extreme regional disparities continue to exist in regards to the participation of minority communities, to political freedom, possibilities for mobility and travel, or when it comes to access to entry points into the dominant music markets.


This year CTM will include many artists from Lebanon, Turkey, Mexico,  China, Indonesia, Japan, Singapore, Egypt, Tunisia, etc.

CTM will also publish a magazine and some talks and lectures will happen in various places in Berlin.

I´m happy to have been invited to write an article for the magazine and give a lecture during the festival too – more about this later this month ; meanwhile you can find plenty of informations, links, music, details and buy your tickets on the CTM website.
