Amani Creatives is a dynamic collective of professional and emerging African musicians.
Following hot in the footsteps of a highly successful pilot project, Amani worked in partnership with CAN and Brighter Sounds during 2016 to develop Amani Live; a monthly event showcasing some of the freshest, new talent from the African diaspora and highlighting the diversity, complexity and enduring cultural influence of Africa.
The monthly Amani Live events took place at Band on the Wall and culminated in a showcase gig on Saturday 10 December 2016 featuring internationally renowned Cameroonian songstress, Coco Mbassi alongside a truly impressive roster of talented African musicians based in the North West.

Amani Live was accompanied by a bespoke package of creative support offering professional development and exposure for emerging and professional artists from African backgrounds.
Amani Creatives are planning further arts programmes including a yearly African music festival and a range of training and activities to support African artists and communities.
CAN are proud to be supporting Amani Creatives as part of our Talent Development programme. Check out their website for more information.
