Newsletter December 30th 2022

Less than one month before Afrodyssee will open its doors! The perfect time to unveil for you some behind-the-scene details about this 7th edition.





This year Rwandan artist Cyubahiro will be in charge of creating the soundtrack for the fashion show. Cyubahiro has been working as DJ since 2011 and performs as a core member of the collective “Patate Douce” at renowned Swiss festivals as Montreux Jazz, Paléo, the Gurten, or abroad, as for example the Afro Nation festival in Portugal. 


True lover of Amapiano music, Cyubahiro answers three questions:


Your first memory of music linked to Africa?

My mother and my sisters dancing to Congolese rhumba (I'm 3 years old).


Why do you think Amapiano is the most beautiful music for dancing?

Because Amapiano is able to move your heart and soul.


A sound that we will find during this year's fashion show?

This year, Afrodyssée is highlighting the theme of Upcycling on the African continent, as part of its mission to promote sustainable initiatives and positive actions in favor of the environment.
