Voices from Malawi, India, Columbia, Liberia and the USA were united against corruption at Fair Play Live

Supporting US hip-hop icon and social activist yasiin bey, young artists from around the world took the stage at VEGA, Copenhagen, Denmark, for an anti-corruption concert organised by JMI in partnership with Transparency International (TI) and the International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC). The event championed social justice causes through music.

JMI was honoured to work with TI to provide a platform for some of the planet’s most inspiring, outspoken young musical artists. Rain in Sahara (India), Haga Que Pase (Columbia) and Faith Mussa (Malawi) were selected through a global online Fair Play music competition, designed to discover and promote the world’s most talented, politically engaged musicians.

The concert took place in VEGA, one of Denmark’s and the region’s top live music venues, and was streamed live around the world.

The musicians also attended the 18th IACC as delegates, participating in workshops and discussions on the global anti-corruption movement and meeting social activists, entrepreneurs, politicians and journalists who work on anti-corruption issues.
