Local artists from diverse cultural backgrounds are also vital contributors to Festival International Nuits d’Afrique. In many cases, the festival has been an important platform for some who might otherwise have few opportunities to promote their considerable talents. Since 1987, every edition of Festival International Nuits d’Afrique has had its own particular charm and personality. That is one of the important reasons it thrives.
