Placide’s Story

I left the Congo to try and find a better life in Morocco, I traveled for 7 months, by bus and train, crossing more than 11 African Countries before arriving here;
When I arrived in Morocco, they suggested me to come to the Foundation, a place where I was able to find people from my same cultural background, other musicians and where I made friends …

The Foundation has given me a lot of opportunities: to be in a quiet place where I can sing my music, to express my culture and to simply be myself.
