INFORMATION ABOUT THE CONCEPT
OF THE International Inter- and Sociocultural Africa Festival 1000 Drums
AS OUR COMMON CREDO »The drum knows no borders (!), no countries (!), no skin color (!), the drum speaks the language of the heart and connects people.« (Mr. Damien Bilondo, founder of the ensemble »Ndungu Kina« and one ofmore than one hundred musicians participating in the Festival1000 Drums so far…)
THE AFRICA FESTIVAL »1000 Drums [Trommeln]« has been inviting drummers and guests to a joint event in the city of Leipzig every year since 2019 to make music, to concerts and workshops, thus making it possible artists, residents and guests to find a forum for encounters in this context: In addition to concerts of African music that are as barrier-free as possible in an emphatically non-commercial or less commercial format, DJ music, dance and talks are held on a weekend in summer from midday onwards, drumming and other workshops for children, young people and adults in a public place in the city for two days, an African bazaar will be created with information stands, a culinary range of African dishes and African goods: clothing, handicrafts, music, etc. accompanied by activities for children, the events are divided between seating and standing areas and a stage.
The annual Interactive Community Concert of the Thousand (rather 20–30) Drums: After instruction and under the guidance of experienced musicians, the guests present are united in playing together: all our guests are expressly invited to play along, to bring their own drums and other musical instruments to the concert and thus to a jam session, to get to know new things, invited, free to do so to dance to their mood. — Target group are: the festival is dedicated to and organized by people with an African migration background and roots (!), citizens of Leipzig and international guests, who thus make an important contribution to integration, but above all the music friends: adults, Young people and families with children, all people who are peacefully interested in the continent of Africa Antera.
