Representatives of the Creative Arts Council led by the President, Mark Okraku-Mantey and some media personnel, paid a courtesy call on the Ghana Embassy in Madrid, Spain.
They engaged the embassy staff about the Casa Africa Vis-a-Vis project and also briefed them on their itinerary for activities on the team from Ghana while in Spain.
Hitz FM’s Doreen Avio reported that the team met briefly with the High Commissioner, Elizabeth Adjei, who expressed excitement at the preparations so far to push the two bands from Ghana, FRA! & Kyekyeku, in Spain.
She explained it forms a core part of their mandate as a commission with regard to public diplomacy.
The Minister in the Ghana Embassy in Spain, William Manful, also urged the team to do more international collaborations as the Vis-a-Vis, to promote Ghanaian music.
He expressed excitement and encouraged Ghanaians to support the initiative within the media space.
He stated that the Embassy will be supporting Ghanaian musicians and bands in subsequent years for festivals whenever there is an opportunity.
The Consular, Harold Quarshie, was enthused that Ghanaians are featuring on the Vis-a-Vis Festival.
The team will move to Granada to meet with the Casa Africa team and join the two bands at Jaèn and Etnosur, where they will be playing to a multitude of music lovers from all over the world.
