AFROPEAN MEETING FESTIVAL traces its line back to the necessity of creating a gateway to a dialogue that relates European artists’ networks to Africans’ ones, so as to give rise to a new Afropean expressiveness.
Members of Djembe Association do share a profound passion for Africa: they embraced its art, music and culture enriched by a great variety of wonders and contradictions.
Their thought relies on the the idea that a lot is still to be learnt from Africa, although lots of people are often persuaded not to believe in, because of the rumor of mass media.
In particular, African cultural background and its musical repertoire are so rich in elements and nuances, that if consciously matched up with our national traditions, only brand new sonorities and revolutionary expressive languages could ever spring up.
Confident about their considerations and about the enormous potentiality of the Afropean movement, they place all their energies and hopes in the organization of the Afropean Meeting Festival, especially in the management of young people, “the grown up of the future”, so as to assure a peaceful society where diversity is respected.

The Afropean Meeting Festival returns for its 5th Edition and will take place from June the 1st to June the 6th 2010 among the Cities of Rovigo, Bosaro and Arquà Polesine.
The great variety of scheduled events aim at highlighting and valorizing the turmoil of expressions arisen from the meeting of Africa and Europe.
One of the most important purpose of this cultural manifestation is the creation of a round table discussion with the most important performer and cultural exponents: everything has been conceived in the quest for new Afropean point of view.
Moreover, the multidisciplinary nature of the manifestation will gather and attract people counting on a wide gamut of artistic and cultural contents to be approached in terms of workshops, shows and conferences. These events will be characterized by the participation of great artists, teaching staff and Intellectuals.


The manifestation has been arranged in 5 main activities:
- Workshops for Musicians and Fans;
- Musical Workshops for Kids;
- Intercultural Drinks “Spritz In Black”;
- Afropean Music Shows;
- “Afropean Contest” for young Artists (groups and soloists)


Workshops
Afropean Meeting Festival plan runs music, dance, singing and theatre workshops based on the quest for new expressive languages relied upon the union between Africa and Europe.
They’re all open to young artists, students, practitioners and amateurs and fixed at different levels, so as to give everyone the opportunity to practice the discipline on the base of one’s own level of experience and get pleasure from an higher formative value.

Workshops for kids
Dedicated to kids, these workshops will count on the collaboration of Bosaro Elementary School. Activities involving pupils will be managed by educators specialized on musical didactics and formation. Activities aim at helping children make an aware choice regarding a possible instrumental path attempting an approach where their expressive and creative abilities may be discovered through a game of resonances.

Spritz In Black
This is the name we’ve chosen for the appreciated intercultural drinks in which the red color of the “spritz” melts in the “black” of Africa.
“Further in time drinks”, actually, to be offered at the sunset, so as to enrich the typical opportunity young people have to freely gather together and open new horizons to a crossbred culture that turns into a moment of discovery and intercultural exchange.
“Spritz in Black” will be characterized by the presence of authors, artists, and Intellectuals attending conferences or having thematic discussions.

Evening shows
They will pursue the same line of thought qualifying the entire manifestation: the main performers will actually be praised artists recognized as experimenters in the “fusion” field and will give evidence to the dawning Afropean Movement.
In order to spread the voice over this event, we settled a plan of musical and dance events to be held in various areas not far away in distance from Rovigo.

Afropean Contest
This is an artistic competition opened to bands, groups or soloists that perform in the quest, experimentation and fusion of new sonorities and expressive languages that may be included in the evolving process characterizing the artistic Afropean Movement.


STAY TUNED ON THESE FREQUENCIES: WE WILL SOON REVEAL THE Vth AFROPEAN MEETING FESTIVAL ARTISTIC PLAN.
