Lets talk music

The passionate singer Richard Mosimane recognized by many as ElemothoAs business activity resumes in Windhoek, the Franco Namibia Cultural Centre hosted their first general public event. The Namibian singer and songwriter, Elemotho, winner of the 2012 Radio France Internationale Discoveries Music Award, spoke at the Art’s Talk event about his journey in the music industry.
This event served as a platform for artists and managers to learn about the music industry from an internationally recognized Namibian artist. The event was also graced by his partner, Silvia Sala, who is just as much part of Elemotho’s success story, having organized his international tours for the past years. Hailing from Spain, Sala spoke about what it takes to break into the international music market and what goes on “behind the scenes”.
In an interview with the Economist, Elemotho gives an overview of some of the pertinent matters affecting artists in today’s era. “The music industry is changing with most artists posting their music online for recognition. With online services such as sound cloud or even Facebook, artists have to fight hard to stay relevant especially with thousands of songs coming out on a daily basis.”
