Interconnected in Culture for a Stronger Ecosystem
ConverSons (Let’s talk!)
The «ConverSons (Let’s talk!)» Thoulathy³ is composed of:
AMME – Association Marocaine de Musique Electronique (Morocco) + Nuits Métis (France) + Assalamalekoum Cultures (Mauritania)
ConverSons (Let’s talk!) is a collaborative project between partners from Morocco, Mauritania and France. It aims to support artists and musical production (with a focus on electro and hiphop), to archive and document our traditional/heritage music, to learn from peers and empower the three project partners. We believe that one of the approaches to make this musical heritage look more appealing and to restore its image to the younger generations would be to rediscover it through a new perspective, in this case that of electronic and hip-hop music, and to integrate artists from the diaspora into the reflection and creation. Thus allowing both to promote innovative and daring artistic production, based on traditional and ancestral sounds, and to document and archive the heritage music with an aim of safeguarding it.
ConverSons will include several activities throughout the 15 months of the project implementation: capacity building workshops, a musical collaborative project, podcasts production, sound sampling, a printed publication and a short making-off film.
