#AuxSons is a collaborative, militant and solidary web media

#AuxSons and Music In Africa join forces

The Music In Afri­ca Foun­da­tion and the web­me­dia #Aux­Sons, lead by French NPO Zone Franche, are plea­sed to announce a media part­ner­ship bet­ween the two orga­ni­sa­tions. This part­ner­ship will enable Music In Afri­ca and #Aux­Sons to bene­fit from their res­pec­tive resources and focus on the exchange of content publi­shed on the orga­ni­sa­tions’ web plat­forms, name­ly www​.musi​ci​na​fri​ca​.net and www​.aux​sons​.com.

In ear­ly 2019, Zone Franche laun­ched #Aux­Sons, a new online maga­zine dedi­ca­ted to world­wide music with an empha­sis on cultu­ral diver­si­ty. #Aux­Sons offers an inno­va­tive and crea­tive sup­por­tive approach, giving new visi­bi­li­ty to cultu­ral­ly diverse music. Thanks to a col­la­bo­ra­tive approach with more than 200 pro­fes­sio­nal contri­bu­tors spe­cia­li­sing in world music, the web­site ampli­fies the voices within the sec­tor and acts as a plat­form for its crea­ti­vi­ty and dynamism.

#Aux­Sons is deligh­ted with this col­la­bo­ra­tion with Music In Afri­ca,”#Aux­Sons edi­tor Angèle Cos­sée said. “Our media offe­rings share the same values and tend towards the same objec­tives of musi­cal dis­co­ve­ry and curio­si­ty. We are high­ly enga­ged with the gene­ral inter­est and pro­mo­tion of the sector’s dyna­mism. For­ming a part­ner­ship to exchange our content is a natu­ral fit for #Aux­Sons, as we aim to deve­lop our inter­na­tio­nal pre­sence.

This part­ner­ship is in line with the vision of the Music In Afri­ca Foun­da­tion, which in 2013 laun­ched a plat­form dedi­ca­ted to the Afri­can music indus­try that aims to sup­port the sec­tor through know­ledge exchange and fos­te­ring collaboration.

The Foun­da­tion also intends to improve col­la­bo­ra­tion bet­ween artists at an inter­na­tio­nal level, through the imple­men­ta­tion of various offline pro­jects, and to raise awa­re­ness of the Afri­can music scene by pro­vi­ding reliable and use­ful infor­ma­tion that pro­motes the continent’s music sec­tor and its operators.

The Afri­can music sec­tor goes far beyond the conti­nent,” Music In Afri­ca edi­tor-in-chief Kalin Pasha­liev said. “Many of our most impor­tant and suc­cess­ful musi­cians live and work in the dia­spo­ra, and the part­ner­ship with #Aux­Sons will allow for infor­ma­tion exchange that bridges the music indus­tries stee­red and defi­ned by Afri­can musi­cians around the world. The aim is to get as many rea­ders as pos­sible to appre­ciate the incre­dible efforts made by these music pro­fes­sio­nals while elu­ci­da­ting the count­less musi­cal cultures that Afri­ca has given to the world.
