In February this year, we performed for a musical showcase hosted by IMEXSA (Independent Music EXporters South Africa), a body funded by the DTI whose mandate is to raise the profile of South African performing artists at international music trade events. The promoters showcase local bands to selection committees at festivals such as the prestigious SXSW (South by South West) in Austin, TX, Womex (World Music Expo) and MIDEM in Cannes, France.
We were delighted to be selected for this year’s MIDEM conference in Cannes. We’ll be getting an opportunity to perform our music at the festival, as well as making contact with industry representatives from around the world. We really do feel privileged to have been selected for this event, and want to send our sincere thanks to all of the fantastic organizers at IMEXSA, who put a huge amount of effort into making sure that they create maximum exposure for South African artists.
