3D FAMILY – SPECIAL PROJECTS

For over fifteen years, 3D Family agency has been working for the development of jazz artists and world music from around the world. Structure on a human scale, 3D Family organizes about four hundred concerts a year for groups such as Salif Keita, Amadou & Mariam, Tiken Jah Fakoly, Fatoumata Diawara, Les Ambassadeurs, Bonga, Omara Portuondo, Mamani Keita, Ester Rada, David Murray, Roberto Fonseca, Saul Williams and Thomas Pourquery.

3D Family strives to foster artistic encounters and to transcend borders, whether linguistic, geographical, or cultural. They have made recordings in Dakar, Bamako and Havana, created music with a South African choir, facilitated encounters between black musicians from Colombia and African musicians and launched a project that brings together legendary jazz and afrobeat musicians with popular figures of hip hop, rock or pop (Tony Allen and QuestLove, David Murray and Macy Gray, Hank Jones and Cheick Tidiane Seck and Les Amazones d’Afrique & Jean-Louis Aubert).

3D Family also develops projects at the intersection of cultural, social and humanitarian issues.
From 2014 to 2015, the agency was responsible for running the campaign Africa Stop Ebola, which spread essential information to help change behaviors and attitudes towards the disease, starting with the recording of the song Africa Stop Ebola (performed by Tiken Jah Fakoly, Salif Keita, Amadou & Mariam and Oumou Sangaré). This campaign resulted in the development of a singing contest in Guinea with the aim of informing local communities about the Ebola virus.
The singing contest ‘Africa Stop Ebola’ was nominated for an award by Fighting Ebola: a Grand Challenge for Development, a grant competition calling for innovative ideas to stop the spread of the disease in West Africa, organized by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) in partnership with the White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the US Department of Defense.
