Africa Stop Ebola - Tiken Jah Fakoly, Amadou & others ...

This forum does exactly what it says in its title. Each page will be a 'stand alone' with a YouTube video clip embedded of new or exciting songs by rising acts and with the potential for comments by members of Sensitize beneath it. Please note that most of these artists and clips are not part of the Upstate Renegade Productions / Sensitize stable, but they are musicians and singer/songwriters we believe should be promoted.

Un collectif de musiciens africains s'est réuni autour de Tiken Jah Fakoly pour enregistrer une chanson afin de sensibiliser les opinions sur le virus Ebola en Afrique. La chanson, intitulée "Africa Stop Ebola", met en vedette les chanteurs Tikken Jah Fakoly, Amadou & Mariam, Salif Keita, Oumou Sangaré, Kandia Kora, Mory Kanté, Sia Tolno, Barbara Kanam et les rappeurs Didier Awadi, Marcus de Banlieuzart (du groupe Banlieuz'Arts) et Mokobé, ainsi que les musiciens Sékou Kouyaté (guitare électrique, basse, kora électrique) et Ludovic N’Holle (batterie).

La chanson s'adresse aux citoyens et les informe de ce qu'ils peuvent faire pour aider à arrêter la propagation du virus Ebola en Afrique. Les artistes chantent en français et dans les langues vernaculaires des régions concernés en Afrique pour s'assurer que le message est entendu quel que soit le niveau d'alphabétisation et d'éducation de la population.

Remerciements à Cheick Tidiane Seck pour sa participation active à la réalisation de ce projet.
