Gambia Artistes performed at an international cultural festival called IYFMMC in the city of Kazan in Russia.

Singer BARHAMA, Ansumana player Kora and DJ G Faal who work together with the event producers to produce the festival song.

This happened in Kazan which received the Youth Capital award due to its vibrant and diverse culture with endless opportunities for young people in all areas of life, especially in culture.

Gibril Faal aka G Faal, Managing Director of Smile Nation said it was a pleasure to work with the head of the festival and the organizers to bring Gambian artists to showcase their art and culture through music at the festival. After going through a tough selection process, Team Gambia was confirmed to perform.

The main aim is to bring Gambian culture to places it has yet to reach, as this is the first time that Gambian artists will participate in this part of the county. There were musical concerts, networking and international collaboration with artists from all over the world.

DILBAR, festival manager, was pleased with Gambia’s performance and contribution to the festival.

Kazan Youth Minister said the performance was the greatest and he hopes to see us again soon.

“This is the start of something big and we will continue to work with Kazan officials to export and import our crops between the two nations”
