Travel to Nigeria with the “Africa tour in 55 weeks”

The non-pro­fit orga­ni­za­tion le Rêve Afri­cain (the Afri­can Dream) puts for­ward talents and cultu­ral pro­jects from Afri­ca, the Carib­beans or South Ame­ri­ca, or any pro­ject ins­pi­red by Afri­ca. Its Afro Pepites Show is an online cultu­ral mar­ket­place connec­ting artists to pro­fes­sio­nals and ama­teurs of Afri­can cultures. Each year, 3 pro­jets are selec­ted and sup­por­ted in their inter­na­tio­nal development.

To cele­brate its 10 years, the orga­ni­za­tion has laun­ched in 2019 a « Tour of Afri­ca in 55 weeks », an immer­sion in the cultures of 55 coun­tries with his­to­ri­cal videos, inter­views of emer­ging artists, the selec­tion of  « Pepites » (nug­gets) artists, pod­casts or pho­to reports. Kicked off in Janua­ry 2020, Læti­tia Nor­mand’s trip has pau­sed after its stop in the Repu­blic of Gui­nea (Cona­kry) because of the COVID-19 and will conti­nue after the end of the lockdown.

In the mean­time, dis­co­ver the first stop of the Tour : Nige­ria ! You will discover :

  • Læti­tia Nor­mand’s trip to Lagos, with an immer­sion in Fela Kuti’s universe.
  • The his­to­ry of Nige­ria before 1800, nar­ra­ted by his­to­rian Olaiya Borisade
  • Video per­for­mances by rap­per Sho­na and actor David Davidson
