Asia Meets Africa at the University Cultural Centre Courtyard

Source: The Centre for the Arts, NUS

Africa Meets Asia is a collaborative effort between artistes from Africa and Singapore. It will be held at the University Cultural Centre Courtyard on 28 Aug 2002. The event offers an enriching cultural arts experience for the whole family to enjoy! 

Brought to you by The Centre for the Arts, NUS in collaboration with WOMAD Projects Singapore, Africa Meets Asia features artistes from WOMAD Festival Singapore 2002: Ben Baddoo of Ghana, Chartwell Dutiro of Zimbabwe, Seckou Keita of Senegal, and Sri Warisan’s Madame Som Said Performing Arts of Singapore. 

These artistes from two distinctive areas of the world, who have all worked internationally in their own right, have come together out of respect for and enjoyment of each other's music.  Such collaboration allows for the exploration of both the similarities and the differences of a musical culture, and provides for the exciting exchange of ideas and interaction.  As audiences will discover at Africa Meets Asia, musical languages can be distinctive, yet connected.

As Chartwell quips, “I think music can bring people together.  The moment we start playing music, language doesn’t matter.  The language is in the music.” 

In keeping with the spirit of WOMAD, the participating artistes will experiment with ethnic and percussion music that transcends continents.  Each musician brings with him/her a strong musical tradition, and each instrument used and piece of music played has an important role in society: Ben Baddoo of Ghana – djembe and balafon music of the Gha people; Chartwell Dutiro of Zimbabwe – mbira music and songs; Seckou Keita of Senegal – Kora traditions; Madame Som Said of Singapore – Malay dance and music fusing traditions with contemporary techniques.  

Admission and parking are free. Food and drinks by Dome will also be available for sale at the venue.
