The musicians who took part in MAISHA, representing 10 different nationalities from Africa & Europe, were carefully selected after an open call to which over 300 musicians had applied. During the two weeks of the residency (April 25 – May 9), they co-created music, gave workshops at local music schools and recorded a 12-track album. As part of the MAISHA project, and thanks to partnerships with the European Investment Bank, The Netherlands and Sweden, the Ethiopian National Theatre was itself partially refurbished.
