The Alliance Française in Gaborone organized on Saturday 27th of June the Fête de la Musique (World Music Day) for the fifteenth running year. The festival has grown bigger and bigger in the 3 past years and gathered this year about 5000 participants, and more than 100 artists at Molapo Crossing’s cultural center. All music styles were represented, notably with the kind participation of Vee and Zeus, two famous artists in Botswana.
The French Embassy, Orange Botswana, Barclays and Total were sponsoring the event. The embassy took this unique opportunity to communicate on the UN Climate Change Conference 2015 in Paris and the Euro 2016.
