The Kora comes home to Namibia

In the early 1990s, two friends, Togo’s Ernest Adjovi and Namibia’s Hage Geingob, discussed the idea of having an awards show that would celebrate and unite Africa through music. This year, that dream returns home to Namibia as Africa’s biggest music awards show, the KORA All-Africa Awards.
The award ceremony, first staged in 1996, has grown from strength to strength, honouring Africa’s top artists and bringing home Africans in the diaspora too.

Shot of the day

MARKING HISTORY: A Palestinian artist draws a mural on the rubble of a building following a march to mark the 67th anniversary of the ‘Nakba’ in al-Tufah, which is situated in the east of Gaza City. ‘Nakba’ means catastrophe in Arabic, in reference to the birth of the State of Israel 67 years ago in British-mandate Palestine. This led to the displacement of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians, who either fled or were driven out of their homes during the 1948 war over Israel's creation.
