SUDAN VOTES MUSIC HOPES on Arte TV
Sudan Votes Music Hopes on Arte TV
Project: A television documentary about musical artists who encouraged political participation and peaceful voting.
Production Runtime: 22 April 2010
Partners: Arte

The Franco-German culture channel Arte TV broadcast a documentary about Sudan Votes Music Hopes, the music album produced by MICT for the Sudanese elections.

Musicians from both northern and southern Sudan produced twelve tracks that conveyed messages encouraging peaceful participation in the political process. The music was then put on 10,000 cassette tapes which were distributed all over the country.

The project was well received by international press and some of the tracks were eventually remixed with a few – such as Emmanuel Jar’s Kuar track – becoming popular outside of the project.
