Provisory festival on the Niger schedule 2008

 
     
 

The third Festival on the Niger, which will take place from 1 to 4 February 2007 in Segou, offers you a unique spectacle, with music and dance from the region, as well as well-known West-African artists, who will play on the river Niger.

This years theme will be : Segou, city of architecture. The principal program elements will be: a discussion forum (theme: Local Knowledge, motor of development), art expositions (theme: The Earth), tales and legends, music and dance, masks and puppets, a craft fair, and workshops.

Through this varied program, the Festival on the Niger offers you an interdisciplinary and intercultural meeting, bringing together people from Segou, Malians and foreigners from all over the world, sharing the same wish: to discover the other and to learn from our differences.
