9TH EDITION

Manifattura Tabacchi di Firenze | IT


INFO
Free admission
(subject to availability)


From June 30 to July 3 the Festival au Désert brings to Florence, this year for the first time in the wonderful spaces of the Manifattura Tabacchi, the magic of the encounter in music among distant cultures.

Four days of concerts with protagonists of the Mediterranean music and of the Tuareg and Berber culture, dj sets, meetings, activities for families, screenings, readings, focused on transit and migration.

The Festival au Désert in Florence is a multicultural music project that since 2010 has created a network for contemporary creation among Africa, the Mediterranean and Europe, starting from the collaboration between Festival au Désert in Essakane (Mali) and Fondazione Fabbrica Europa.

Since then the project has favoured a journey to and from Africa, a new Africa that is able to innovate without denying its own story, becoming a “meeting space among cultures” in Florence.
