The Ivorian reggae singer Alpha Blondy, Nigeria’s CKay, and K-pop band B.I.G are among the stars set to perform at Tunisia’s Carthage music festival, which kicks off on Thursday after a two-year hiatus imposed by Covid.

The 56th Festival International de Carthage, one of North Africa’s most prestigious music events, returns with the theme “We’re coming back to life, we’re breathing art.”

The 2020 and 2021 editions were canceled due to the pandemic that ravaged Tunisia, but the festival is back with 33 shows at Carthage’s Roman amphitheater, which can seat 12,000 people.

The festival begins Thursday evening with a broadway musical by Tunisian film director Abdelhamid Bouchnak, and will also feature Naseer Shamma, a renowned Iraqi oud player, Tunisian vocalists Saber Rebai and Balti, and Egyptian pop star Shirine.

“The return of festivals means the return of energy to our lives,” Youssef Lachkhem, the head of Tunisia’s government culture agency, said.
