Fabbrica Europa and Festival au Désert meet Effetto Venezia
The concert of Tinariwen and Dinamitri Jazz Folklore comes to Livorno thanks to a collaboration between Fabbrica Europa / Festival au Désert and Effetto Venezia 2016, a project promoting multiculturalism, one of the elements that characterize the city of Livorno.
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 the Festival au Désert in Essakane (Mali) and Fondazione Fabbrica Europa.
Together with Malian festival (that since 2012 has become Caravane pour la Paix because of the war in Mali) was established a co-operation with the aim to develop a network for production and promotion of new creations. Since then the project has fostered a trip to and from Africa, a new Africa that knows how to innovate without denying its own history and has become in Florence a “meeting place between cultures”.
