ERA & Bridges For Music Collaboration

Thu 07 August 2014

The Bridges For Music program is one that every South African music enthusiast should be in the know about. It is a program that has become synonymous with the shaping of the Electronic Music landscape here in South Africa and is slowly but surely becoming formidable force in helping to create a platform to allow the future of our South African Electronic Music shine through on the global stage.

ERA will be working closely with Bridges for Music in creating these multiples platforms and learning experiences for the rising talent we have back home. Various incentive based events as well as workshops and special features will all become a part of ERA life as we begin this adventure with a cause so dear to our hearts!

We’ve compiled a little info on Bridges for Music to give you an idea of the humanity behind this genius program, and we know that as a member of the ERA community you will love it just as much as we do!

WHAT IS BRIDGES FOR MUSIC?

Bridges For Music is a non-profit organization gathering key players of the music industry to support its responsible development in developing countries, leaving a positive impact in disadvantaged communities and helping to raise global awareness about local issues through music.

ETHOS / MISSION

We believe electronic music is a universal language that can be used to break down socio-economic boundaries.
Music and artists can help bridge the extensive gap that exists between the rich and the poor as well as between different races in developing countries.
Artists today have a strong engagement with their fans and through this more are becoming opinion leaders, giving them a responsibility to raise awareness and take action on issues that need attention.
Globalisation is affecting the music industry and electronic music is expanding to developing countries where we have a great opportunity and responsibility to leave a legacy.
We believe the music industry has a great power to “give back” but the result will be exponentially bigger if we all pull together in the same direction. Electronic music has become the fastest growing music genre and the most accessible, now anyone can develop their talent from any random corner in the World.

Working together, hand-in-hand, embarking on this exciting adventure together, working to build an even brighter future for Electronic Music in South Africa.

Information on upcoming Bridges for Music affiliated events will be released through our website on a monthly basis, be sure to stay in touch and up to date with this incredible cause
