Creation of the first Centre for Black Music in the World
The Center for Black Music, the first museum of its kind, has been designed to honour the incredible evolution of the worldwide black musical odyssey. The Center is located in Salvador, capital of the state of Bahia, Brazil, and global crossroads for Black Music. Salvador’s historical and geographical connections to the African coast have made it one of the most important points of convergence for European, African and Amerindian cultures.
The Center for Black Music will use the latest technological innovations, featuring unique interactive installations that engage and stimulate all the senses. Located inside the Museu du Ritmo, the Center for Black Music will contain both permanent and temporary exhibition spaces, an online resource Center, cafés and restaurants as well as venues for concerts and conferences alike…
The definitive inauguration of the Centre for Black Music is planned for the 4th quarter of 2011.
