EVENT: M.I.A.L X Freeme Music Presents: Zone 3 live Concert - Sounds Of The New Decade

 Freeme Music, in collaboration with The Music In Africa Foundation (MIAF), will livestream the #Zone3Live concert featuring The Cavemen., Singah, Magnito, Anita Jini, Maka, Ninety, Cyclone Artemis, and a host of other acts from The Freeme Space, Lagos on December 18, 2020, at 7 pm (GMT+1).

Zone 3 live was created to provide a platform for African music creators and collaborators to showcase their craft after a rather uneventful year for performing artists. The concert is aimed at showcasing the new age of African music and its relationship with all global genres. While showcasing and promoting the wealth of African culture through music and related aesthetics, Zone 3 Live also seeks to create premium content for the preservation and consumption of African entertainment.

Zone 3 Live is a free-to-view concert and will be streamed on Freeme TV and Freeme Digital’s Facebook pages at 7 pm (GMT+1) 

“Freeme Digital is delighted to partner with The Music In Africa Foundation (MIAF) on this timely initiative and the attention it brings to indigenous sound and culture. More so, this alliance further strengthens the fast-evolving African entertainment ecosystem as the world navigates through the pandemic. At Freeme Digital, we promote and showcase African artists and their music to a global audience with a focus on Africa; and that is what this partnership is about for us. We do not just want to take Africa to the world, but rather, bring the world to Africa.” - Michael Ugwu, CEO Freeme Digital 

Themed SOUNDS OF THE NEW DECADE, the maiden edition will merge the concept of two long-running seasonal shows called A3 Sessions - a platform that gives vocalists the opportunity to render a 3-part medley of their songs and/or the songs of other established acts, and Zone out Sessions - an afro-hip hop platform that allows young talents to spontaneously create and perform hard-hitting lyrical pieces.

Thousands of African musicians have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has occasioned unprecedented lockdowns and restrictions across the continent. African musicians and professionals traditionally make a living from live performances, and now they find themselves in extreme difficulty.

The Music In Africa Live project is one of a number of new projects that the Music In Africa Foundation is introducing this year to support music professionals in Africa.

The project is supported by the German Federal Foreign Office, Siemens Stiftung and Goethe-Institute.
