POSTERTHE Gibraltar World Music Festival is launching a new ‘BrightMed’ initiative for its sixth edition, GMWF: Uprising.

The aim of BrightMed is to celebrate Gibraltar as a place of ‘convivencia’, whose identity is marked by the cooperation of cultures and spiritual beliefs.

Organisers have invited sages and peace leaders from across the world to discuss this philosophy of coexistence.

The BrightMed programme will include films, talks, a conference and an exhibition, all as part of the Gibraltar World Music Festival, from June 6-8.

Events at the GWMF will focus on Africa, with documentaries on the struggle of Malian musicians, and a street party named ‘AFREEKA’ which will focus on artists from Ethiopia and Mali.

The lineup for the music festival will include Adi Adunia, Yossi Fine, Gili Yalo and Bassekou Kouyate.
