Victoria Falls (Zambia-Zimbabwe)

Also known as Mosi-oa-Tunya (the smoke that thunders) in the Lozi language, the Victoria falls is one of the most iconic landmarks of Africa. The sheer length and height of the falls makes it the largest sheet of falling water anywhere in the world.

Besides the falls itself, it is situated in two national parks straddling both Zambia and Zimbabwe. One enjoys a fully packaged African experience with easy access to Africa’s big five attractions near the waterfall.  The scenic view around the falls are also bound to blow your mind and leave one of the best impressions in your life.Victoria Falls.

Marrakesh

The fourth largest city in the Kingdom of Morocco, Marrakesh is arguably the best North Africa has to offer. No wonder, Hollywood companies love shooting films featuring desert scenery here.

Besides breathtaking views of the Sahara, Marrakesh’s architecture is like no other in the world. From Bob Agnaou landmark built in the 12th century to the modern Menara gardens, Marrakesh’s beauty and elegance is unmatched the world over.

Cape Town

The southern-most major city in Africa, Cape-Town is an important African landmark.

From any point within the city, the ocean or a mountain is in sight. Located at the foot of the Table Mountains, one can enjoy the panoramic view of the Cape Town bay with a simple cable car ride to the top of the Table mountains.

However, given its location at the Southern tip of the continent, and close to the point where warm and cold currents from the Atlantic and Indian Oceans converge, one can experience the four seasons on a single day.

Being located in South Africa, Cape Town was at the center of the country’s apartheid history. District Six Museum gives an insight into the dis-enfranchisement of mixed race people before and during the apartheid era.

If you are travelling to Africa soon, Egypt should be number one on your list for various reasons. Constructed 3000 years ago, in Ancient Egypt, the Pyramids are a relic to the power wielded by the Egyptians in the Ancient world making it one of the best places to visit in Africa.

They are evidence of the immense wealth and influence possessed by Egyptian pharaohs. However, the pyramids are worthy of your visit from the sheer awe they inspire to anyone at the base of any of them.

Located in the middle of the Sahara, camel rides are also guaranteed bonus as you enjoy learning more facts about the pyramids and the civilization that created them.

 

Addis Ababa

Nothing shouts Africa more than Addis Ababa. Despite being the seat of the African Union, it also ranks among the highest capital cities by latitude in the World.

Established in 1892 by Emperor Menelik, Addis also stands as the commercial and cultural capital of Ethiopia. However, it would not be that hard to ignore Addis as the cultural capital of Ethiopia given the tremendous speed skyscrapers and modern infrastructure has been cropping up all over the city. The city is, therefore, a composite of the past, and the present.

Addis is both ancient and modern. This is clearly visible from the newly Chinese-built Addis light rail system that cuts across the city.

Exclusive Interview: manuel joachim alexis Mahé Delves on His Creative Tastes, His Inspirations & New Single “Deportation”

 

Sheer genius is demonstrated by the fascinating versatile music producer and songwriter manuel joachim alexis Mahé in his new single “Deportation.” The impeccable artist’s tracks are creatively entertaining and captivate the audience with an immersive and catchy vibe.

We’re lucky enough to have sneaked in for an interview with a talented artist. He was generous enough to lend some of his precious moments as we gleefully stumbled deep into his personal and professional life. Here are some excerpts from the interview:

Congratulations on your last title “Deportation”, what do you think of this new success?

“Deportation” was composed based on a true story of a member of my family who was deported during WWII and died on a death march since Flossenbürg. It’s great for me to understand this memory and work on it.

Who was the first influence that inspired you to take the leap into the music scene?

I think it was really Deep Purple.

What were the big more initial obstacles in pursuing your musical dreams and how did you overcome them?
At first, alcohol, drugs, and certainly women afterward. I had a problem with a tendon in my left hand… half cut! It is a problem for to play instruments properly.
But I love music and when I compose or perform, all the problems are elsewhere

What goals have you achieved? What goals are you still working towards?

My goal, now achieved, was an album and this with little means now. I actually work to keep producing singles who are a part of me. My music is part of me.

Do you have dream collaborations? Who are they ?

Yes, I think all musicians are friends and when you love music, you love all the music in the world.
It’s for this that we can dream about collaborations? Because I have no problems with my collaborators, as with my label Distrokid or certain musicians, composers and performers I met to work on the internet.

Can we expect any projects to come soon? Please enlighten us on this.

Yes, I’m actually working on a cover and a composition of myself. I would like more and more intensive work, but the deadlines are not the same.

Thanks for speaking with us! For our last question, is there anything else you would like to add?

Respect musicians, we live a bad period and a lot of people need to have other thins as the violence of our world.
