Among them are Amadou and Mariam (Mali), Omar Sosa (Cuba), Angelique Kidjo (Benin), Baaba Maal (Senegal), Sierra Maestra (Cuba), Cheb Mami (Algeria), Geoffrey Oryema (Uganda), Funk’N’Lata (Brazil), Habib Koité (Mali), Ismael Lo (Senegal), Mahlathini and the Mahotella Queens (South Africa), Papa Wemba (DRC), Positive Black Soul (Senegal), Ray Lema (DRC), Ricardo Lemvo (DRC/Cuba), Wasis Diop (Senegal) and many others.

Over the last five years, Manu Dibango from Cameroon, Senegal’s Youssou N’Dour, Miriam Makeba from South Africa, Papa Wemba from Congo and Mory Kante from Guinea have all been proud ambassadors for the festival. 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.
