The fourth event in the Future Cities series takes you to the thriving music scene of one of the fastest-growing economies in the world. Barely fifteen years ago, Ethiopia was the second poorest country in the world. By 2025, it expects to become a middle-income country. What do musicians and artists think of the prosperity? Does the music industry benefit from the government’s ambition to transform Addis Ababa into a modern metropolis? In Addis Ababa, photographer Yvonne Brandwijk and journalist Stephanie Bakker dove into the lives of musicians, singers, and producers. By telling their stories, showing photos and short documentaries they will take you on an instant trip to Ethiopia’s capital. You will hear the city, meet the people and feel the energy.
