Victor Gama initiated the Tsikaya Project in 1997 in the midst of Angola’s Civil War that gave voice to composers and musicians in the interior of this vast country in Southern Africa. To this day, the project continues to record the musical works of composers living in rural areas. It preserves and strengthens traditional music by creating a digital archive with music, images and data about the composers; it stimulates local music production and contributes to a sustainable livelihood. Intersecting ancient musical traditions with economic development has led to improved living standards and cultural enrichment in rural Angola.
