Capacity Building Projects:
Mali and Afghanistan

For a number of years RAMA has been engaged in two major capacity building projects in Mali and Afghanistan. The aim is to work together with the local Academies in Bamako and Kabul to strengthen the young music academies and to give access to international collaborations and inclusion. The two programs have meant regular visits to and from Mali and Afghanistan. The programs are supported by CKU (Danish Centre for Culture and Development) and the Danish Embassies in Mali and Afghanistan.

The large scale cooperation with Mali also includes collaboration with Danish SPOT festival with the focus of creating a platform (“SPOT on MALI Music”) for talent development of young promising Mali musicians. The most visible result is an annual showcase festival in Bamako and a corresponding webpage and interactive Facebook group www.spotonmalimusic.org and www.facebook.com/spotonmalimusic
