Angola: Plastic Artist Wants More Interaction Between Generations

Luanda — The Angolan plastic artists Francisco Van-Dúnem on Thursday here considered the need for an interaction between the new and old generations of arts makers, meant to give continuity to tradition and share attitudes, concepts and pleasures, Angop has learnt.

He told so to Angop, on the sidelines of the workshop on the Angolan popular music, adding that there is low interest in the investigation and study by young people with regard to this kind of music.

I think that producing songs already sung is a manner of contributing for the preservation.

But, it cannot start from what an elder created and from the characteristic of the music.

Artists must sing their music, he said.
