1. The Huambo Musica Sessions, supported by the Prince Claus Fund, took place in the city of Huambo as part of the implementation of the Tsikaya project in Angola. Most of the recording sessions happened at the auditorium of the Provincial Delegation for Culture with musicians that have a long musical trajectory but have never seen their music released. Other sessions were also done in Bailundo, Belém do Huambo and at other locations in the province of Huambo. Videos, music, texts and images of each participant are available at the tsikaya web site, a platform that promotes musicians from the interior of Angola, giving them access to a wider global audience. Started by Angolan composer Victor Gama in 1997, the project now features samples of old archives collected by German musicologist Ulrich Martini in the early 70s and by the Diamang Company in the 40s, 50s and 60s.
