EMC: Recap of the European Forum on Music 2021

European Forum on Music

"Music is at the centre of the well being of our spirit, of our body and mind. It's not only entertainment, it's more than that!"

Angélique Kidjo opened with such powerful words the 10th European Forum on Music, on June 2, 2021. The theme for this year's EFM was "Claiming a front row seat. The place of music in society", which was also reflected in Angélique Kidjo's words.

Her speech devoted particular attention to the effects of the pandemic on the cultural sector, from both an economic and social point of view, by focusing also on the health issues of adolescents and income of musicians. You can watch the full keynote here.

Angélique Kidjo's intense message echoed during the whole European Forum on Music, which took place for three days, bringing together issues such as the place of music in the society, the Sustainable Development Goals and the working conditions of artists.
