MICT proudly presents: SUDAN MUSIC REMIXED -
Emmanuel Jal vs. Olof Dreijer (The Knife) and Henrik Schwarz

-> Release Event at: WOOD WOOD BERLIN, Rochstrasse 4, 10178 Berlin
Time: 6:00PM Monday, September 27th

Yes to political participation! Yes to a peaceful referendum! The music 
production aims to increase
awareness of the 2011 referendum on the independence of South Sudan on 
an international
level. The first release presents the Emmanuel Jal Song“Kuar” in two 
remixed versions by Olof
Dreijer and Henrik Schwarz out on Innervisions.

The idea of the original album Sudan Votes Music Hopes - compiled by 
singer and songwriter
Max Herre - was to bring together artists and musicians from different 
regions of Sudan to write
music to encourage the people of Sudan to make a mark on their future. 
Famous Sudanese
artists such as Emmanuel Jal and Nas Jota feature on the album produced 
by the German
Organization Media in Cooperation and Transition – MICT.

Sudan has endured more than four decades of civil war since its 
independence in 1956. A peace
agreement formally ended the conflict in 2005. Now the population of 
Southern Sudan will have
the chance to decide on the region’s secession in a referendum scheduled 
for January 2011.

Several organisations have come together from across the world on the 
Sudan 365 – A Beat
For Peace campaign to promote international awareness and advocate a 
free and fair
referendum. The Sudan Votes Music Hopes Remixed project by MICT joins 
this global campaign.

MICT has been realising media projects since 2003, focusing on the 
Middle East, Afghanistan
and Africa. MICT launched the project Sudan Votes Music Hopes in 2010 as 
part of a voter and
journalist education project funded by the German Federal Foreign Office.
