Johannesburg: creation of the Indian Ocean Music Network

Key players in the music sector of the Indian Ocean region recently announced their plans to create the Indian Ocean Music Network (IOMN) following a meeting held in Johannesburg bringing together 40 representatives of the music sector and festivals celebrating 12 of the region’s countries and islands. “Aside from the need to stimulate job creation, pool resources, boost creativity, and encourage cultural exchange, it is also crucial to promote local music at a regional level. In this regard, the meeting allowed us to identify key objectives for the Indian Ocean Music Network (IOMN). The network feels it is imperative to sustainably develop viable circuits for musicians and artists, encourage economies of scale, respect cultural diversity, and share resources in mutually beneficial ways,” states the Conseil francophone de la chanson website.
