About the festival

The OpenMic/AfriCourage double bill invites you to participate in an event celebrating the power of music!

Join AfriCourage –

Experience Gambian stars like Jali Madi and Gee live on stage with world-famous musicians like Baaba Maal and Smockey – at The Gambia’s biggest venue, the Independence Stadium in Bakau, and on the radio / web.
