• "The Musician" about the Academy in Mali

    14th of January 2016 · tags:

    International coordinator Keld Hosbond is currently in Mali, where the Academy in several years has made great efforts to contribute to build up a music academy and to the exchange of students between Denmark and Mali. Along with SPOT festival in Aarhus and Balla Fasséké Kouyaté Conservatory in Bamako the Academy just now organizes SPOT on Mali, giving young talents in Mali a platform to move forward from.

    In the latest issue of "The Musician" (p. 42-43) there is a major article about the project, which is supported by the Danish Embassy in Bamako and the Centre for Culture and Development (which closes at the end of 2016 as a result of the Finance Act).

    The magazine also brings a portrait (p. 44-45) of vocal student Hawa Dembele from Mali, who has just been on an exchange study for a few months at the Academy in Aalborg. She tells about her cooperation with Danish and Finnish fellow students. (See photo series from Hawa's matinee concert at the library in Aalborg in December.)
