Now in its second year, Ongea was originally known as Kenya Music Week but after ten years it expanded in scope to include other East African countries.
“This year we had more participation from countries that haven’t attended in the past, such as Cameroon, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Ghana, Mozambique, Nigeria, South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Australia, Poland and Ireland. Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda were, as usual, well represented,” stated summit’s founder, Mike Strano, via a press release on the event’s website.
The statement further explained that, this year the organisers intended to spark new innovations and content through discussions, networking and new funding deals. Panel discussions tackled relevant industry topics such as how to be booked for festivals, intellectual property rights, the financial viability of digital distribution, the gaps in sound engineering and the production of live performances as well as the impact of music on culture, development and advocacy.
