Festival Description

Assalam Alekoum Festival (also known as Assalamalekoum Festival) is an annual hip hop, rap, and world music festival that is organized by Zaza Productions in Nouakchott, Mauritania. Other nation’s artists take part as well — Niger, Senegal, France among others perform.

The festival also serves as a gathering to educate and mobilize festival attendees about extremism and religious and ethnic conflicts. Prior to the festival a search is conducted for rising talents in the field of music through “Assalamalekoum to Discover Art Talents”. Primarily amateur musicians showcase their talents with the hope to take part in the lineup. The competition itself is a way of bringing people of diverse cultural backgrounds together in a friendly and positive atmosphere.
