Making Music Productions


Making Music Productions (MMP) is an event management company at the forefront of circulating African musicians locally and across the continent. It is based in Cape Town, South Africa. It is best known by association with the higher profile musicians it has worked with over the years. We manage all African movements for Salif Keita, and we have represented Ismael Lo, Angelique Kidjo, Manu Dibango and Papa Wemba for over twenty years.

In its 24 year history Making Music Productions has produced, managed, and/or creatively directed, numerous significant events, such as the Official Millennium Celebration on Robben Island (attended by then-President Thabo Mbeki and ex-President Nelson Mandela, and countless dignitaries and heads of state); Thabo Mbeki’s Inauguration, City Hall Sessions (2011 - 2014) - a project aimed at repositioning Cape Town's City Hall as a cultural space for diverse sound experiences.

As a result, MMP is robust in all aspects of live-music and events production on the African continent. Its diverse services include concept and script development for events, artistic treatment, coordination of CSI and mentorship programmes, artist bookings, on-site coordination, as well as audio technical production for any size event.

We manage enquiries, tailor artistic solutions, and always have hands-on presence at the place of performance, until the artist steps on stage.
