Campus 2016 - Addis Ababa

First full East African Global Music Campus

After the success of the East African Campus Tour of Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya and Ethiopia in 2015 the East African Campus moves into the next phase. With the close support and co-operation of the Goethe-Institutes in Ethiopia and Tanzania as well as the Goethe Music Section in Munich the first group of trainees selected for the Campus will begin full training in the two year curriculum in Addis Ababa. The participating countries are Uganda, Tanzania, Ethiopia and South Sudan. South Sudan will participate for the first time supported by the Goethe-Institut in Ethiopia. The Campus will be hosted by Jazz Amba School of Music for the first time and will close with a final concert by the participants.



This campus has been made possible through generous financial support from the German Foreign Office and the Goethe-Institut.

East African Global Music Campus

The tour is taking place within the framework of the East African Global Music Campus teacher training program which has the overall objective of preserving, developing and promoting African music and African music education in the region. To this end the Global Music Academy in Berlin and its partners in the region are developing a two year course which will provide professional training for aspiring young musicians focussed on the music of Africa and training musicians to teach on the program.
