THE AFRICAN DREAM
PRESENTS THE AFRO PEPITES SHOW
THE 2017 PEPITES
8th edition of the Selections of the African Dream!
The great discoveries identified by the listeners’ committee and the web users!
The AFRO PEPITES SHOW is the 1st project hunting talents from Africa through social networks…
We have “agitated” the artists on the Internet, widened our communication networks to harvest a new artistic bunch dedicated to:
- Professionals of culture willing to highlight new talents (media, managers, producers, organizers, distributors, tour managers…)
- Internet users interested in discovering new cultural trends.
This year too the Listeners’ committee has discovered nearly 238 projects.
It has short-listed 12 projects which have made a difference thanks to their originality, music quality and/or their lyrics.
Then, Internet users voted to support their favourite project!
This result is the fruit of a collaborative selection.
| Thank you all for your participation |
| ENJOY THE DISCOVERIES AND SPREAD THE WORD |
NEXT CALL FOR ARTISTIC PROJECTS: FROM 1 FEB. 2018!
THE VIDEO ANNOUNCEMENT
1st Pepite ● Studio SHAP SHAP | NIGER, CHAD, REUNION ISLAND | ALTERNATIVE- ELECTRO ●
Studio Shap Shap, this is the story of 6 friends living in Niamey and who have different languages, ages, history and cultures (4 Nigerians, 1 Chadian, 1 from Reunion island). Six musicians who have the same desire to have Niger be heard differently.
When people think of music in Niger, this Western African country, they generally think of Touareg music.
Studio Shap Shap proves this country has much more to offer musically.
This band plays with a mix of little-known traditional instruments from Sahel (Douma, Kinde, Komsa), electronic sounds, « field recordings » and stories from ancient times…
● LOOKING FOR a manager, producer, publisher, distributor, booking agency, organizers, media...
2d Pepite ● KRISTEL | MADAGASCAR | POP ROCK ●
Kristel is not only a feminist, it is also, and primarily, the future of a feminist generation and of a nation which is at stake.
With her trusty musicians, her Pop Rock trio play themes where love feelings are put forward, together with their rebel touch.
Kristel, Benkheli and Sylvano are ready to tour the world with this first album released in October 2017.
● LOOKING FOR Agents, organizers, media...
● MANAGEMENT : Pierre A Blanc. PRODUCTION : Libertalia-Music Records
3rd Pepite ● Bob ATISSO | TOGO | SAND SCULPTURE ●
Words are not strong enough to describe the works of Bob. Extremely precise, it often happens that one wonders how can we build such monuments almost with bare hands and with the only material: sand.
In his work, he masterfully presents the daily life in Africa while giving the artistic touch a special engineering. Bringing to life the sand is respecting nature.
With Bob Atisso, sand sculpture has a name!
As he likes to remind us, the important thing is to communicate by works, we give you the opportunity to contemplate them.
● LOOKING FOR a Manager, Agent, Event Organizers.
