American musical group Mad Noise arrives in Gambia



On December 14, the United States Embassy will host “Mad Noise,” a Californian musical group that is touring several African countries, including The Gambia, as part of its 2015 international program.

The group will arrive in The Gambia on December 14 to kick off an intense week-long music project that includes free concerts at Ebunjan Theater and Jarra Soma on 16 and 17 respectively. These performances will feature local musical guests in addition to “Mad Noise” and are completely free and open to the public. A musical entrepreneurship workshop for Gambian musicians as well as a visit to Gambia Senior Secondary School in Banjul will also be part of the Group’s activities.

These concerts with Gambian artists are important platforms for the exchange of ideas and experiences, leading to a better appreciation of one’s musical genre and the wider cultural context. We strongly believe that this whole project will dramatically improve diversity and promote entrepreneurship and economic progress for Gambian musicians. The strong interactions and networking that will ensue between Gambian and American musicians have the potential to forge lasting professional relationships for the future development of local artists and the music scene in general.

The Group’s activities will begin with a press conference for Gambian journalists, to which your press house is invited to send a press team. See details below:
