Project description

The TERANIM Centre for Popular Arts is an independent cultural institution, committed since 2014 to a plural society proud of its arts. It is interested in the revival of Mauritanian popular heritage and particularly in the music inherited from the former slaves, “the Haratines”.

The “Promotion of disappearing musical styles” project targets groups of young popular singers (girls and boys), unknown to the general public, but with undeniable talent. 20 young people, aged between 16 and 35, will have the opportunity to practice their art through educational workshops and conferences. The project will ensure links with local communities, with the aim of creating a reference framework for the development and conservation of this heritage.
