Project description

Founded by José Da Silva, producer and manager of Cesaria Evora, Harmonia LDA carries out cultural development projects through both music and audiovisual production, as well as organising events such as the famous Kriol Jazz Festival and the Atlantic Music Expo trade show.

A victim of the pandemic, the Cape Verdean cultural sector is struggling to recover. In an attempt to revitalise this still very fragile economic sector, the project aims to relaunch the “Kriol Jazz Festival”. After 10 years, it has become a key event in jazz and world music. Reviving it will allow the local population to live off this economy (revival of tourism and events created around the festival), and will also allow African and/or Caribbean artists who have not been able to perform for two years to return to the stage.
