Namibia: 'Art Talk' With Elemotho

The Franco-Namibian Cultural Centre's (FNCC) first event of the year takes place next week and features successful local musician Elemotho, who will present an 'Art Talk' in the FNCC Cinema.

Namibian singer and songwriter Elemotho, winner of the 2012 RFI France 24 Discoveries Music Award, will be talking about professional musicianship and music management.

With many years of experience writing and performing live music as well as touring overseas, Elemotho will share some of his hard earned knowledge and experience with fellow Namibian artists who would like to embark on a professional music career. He is joined by his partner, Silvia Sala, who is just as much part of Elemotho's success story, having organised his international tours for the past years. Hailing from Spain, Sala will talk about what it takes to break into the international music market and what goes on behind the scenes.

This event promises to be very fruitful and educational for artists and managers alike who would like to take their music to the world and beyond.

Art Talk will take place on Thursday, January 17 at 18h00 in the FNCC Cinema. Entrance is free.
