Africa Cantat 2 is actively preparing to welcome hundreds of festival goers expected in Yaoundé from 1-6 August 2023. The festival will take place on the Nkolbisson campus of the Catholic University of Central Africa in Yaoundé.
This peaceful and ecological site, which boasts quality infrastructures, is the ideal setting for the ‘festival village’ with its lush green spaces preserving biodiversity and landscape heritage, as well as its multifunctional venues. All the workshops and most of the concerts will take place on site, close to the accommodation and restaurants, favouring exchanges and conviviality and, above all, quality performance spaces.
The largest international festival of choral music in Africa, initiated by the Confederation of African Choral Music (ACCM) under the patronage of the Ministry of Culture and Arts of Cameroon, Africa Cantat 2 is organised by the Association of Friends of the Madrigal Choir of René Esso of Cameroon, and supported by the IFCM, the European Choral Association, A Coeur Joie International (ACJI), Afrikiyo, and the Cameroon Federation of Choral Music A Coeur Joie (FECAMUSH-ACJ). It is funded by the regional programme "ACP- EU CULTURE - Creating in Central Africa" with the contribution of the European Union and the support of the Organisation of ACP States.
Let's sing in the heart of Africa!
