Experience Xeex Sibbiru!
For those of you not lucky enough to be in Dakar for the Xeex Sibbiru Song Contest, we wanted to share some details. Take a minute to join in the experience and see how MNM’s innovation is having an impact in Africa:
- Learn more about one of Malaria No More’s signature initiatives, Surround Sound Senegal, on our website round-up, including a video of the winner—Djibril Diop—performing in front of the crowd.
- You can also access amazing behind-the-scenes footage of the finalists rehearsing before the concert and see how East meets West in a jam session with Diamond, our incredibly talented guest from Tanzania’s Zinduka! campaign.
- To meet the contestants, head over to the Dakar Calling blog, where Peace Corps volunteer extraordinaire Adam Horowitz introduces the world to the Xeex Sibbiru Song Contest finalists.
- Press coverage of the event was widespread in Senegal and beyond, including in Newsweek, Agence France Presse, Voice of America and Huffington Post.
Thanks to our partners and supporters of the Surround Sound program at ExxonMobil for making Xeex Sibbiru happen!
