New, experimental, unconventional music!

Lukas Ligeti is the artistic director of the World New Music Days, which took place in Africa for the first time in its centenary year 2023 - a unique opportunity for creative exchange: both the African audience and the guests from all over the world heard music they had never come into contact with before.

For almost three decades, Lukas Ligeti has been active as a musician and composer in various African countries with his approach of experimental intercultural cooperation, seeking ways to share creativity. His expertise and networking made him once again a bridge builder. In an interview before the event, he talks about his experiences, goals and hopes as curator of the World New Music Days 2023.
