MusiKarama is a yearly event within the festival, in which musical acts related to the festival’s theme are presented. As we believe music is an important aspect of each culture, it reaches every human being on an emotional and intellectual level. It also positions us in a space where we reflect seriously on current questions.
This year, music will be present to reinforce our stance against extremism, It will create a safe space where all artists can speak out, express their minds and feel united for different and separate stories that merge into one.
