    Wherever you go: Music in Africa is also available on mobile devices.

Portal Growth

The musicinafrica.net website went online in November 2014. Since then, the portal has demonstrated constant user growth (as of April 2017):

170,000 unique users per month
13,000 registered artists and institutions

Information on 27 African countries is online. By 2022, information on all 54 African countries will be available.

To achieve long-term sustainability the Music In Africa Foundation runs different offline projects based on fundraising models. The Foundation’s strategic plan for the next three years places key focus on diversifying its existing funding base by getting more partners and donors involved.

Current partners

The website, as a central meeting place for people interested in African music, also offers advertising services to businesses across the continent. Sustainability is also addressed by the website’s content strategy, which relies partly on user-generated content. Music In Africa is active “offline” as well with workshops, concerts, or exchange programs.
