Project that aims to promote employment and income-generating activities in the cultural sector of the PALOP and Timor-Leste.



The international Marimba project is already taking the first steps, resulting from the applications to PROCULTURA, an action  of the PALOP-TL and EU program, financed by the European Union, co-financed and managed by Camões – Instituto da Cooperação e da Língua, of Portugal.

This unprecedented initiative among Portuguese-speaking countries acknowledges that innovation and artistic creation are based on intangible heritage, and that its knowledge and dissemination are an essential contribution to the countries’ artistic, cultural and socio-economic development.

These “ambassadors” will have as their main function to encourage and motivate the participation of young artists as agglutinating and motivating elements, and also becoming the faces of the Marimba project to the media and the general public: Paulo Flores (Angola); Nástio Mosquito (Angola); Manecas Costa (Guinea-Bissau); Stewart Sukuma (Mozambique).
