The cultural TV channel ARTE is a partner of the 30th International Africa Festival and will be featured for the tenth time with its own ARTE cinema tent on the festival ground. Because of the double anniversary, ARTE will be presenting a “best of“ of its festival programme so far, including documentaries, among them portraits of great African musicians like “Mama Africa“ Miriam Makeba, Fatoumata Diawara and Youssou N’Dour, of whom many have already been guests at the Africa Festival.
