Milena Milu – Travel, Youth and Culture
As part of a cultural visit, Milena spent two years in Ghana, West Africa. There she founded and directed music and dance projects for more than 70 children and adolescents aged 7 to 22 years.
With the participation of many Ghanaian musicians, Milena Milu produced the CD “African Kiss” with the pupils of their workshop, and celebrated the publication of the Goethe Institute Accra in the same year.
As a thank you for their dedication and commitment to music enthusiasts she was invited by the then ‘Musiga’ President Diana Hopeson to join the Ghanaian Music Association as an honorary member.
In cooperation with a German-Ghanaian sponsoring organization they applied for funding and received financial support from the EU.
At the 2010 World Cup, Milena Milu wrote the song ‘Go Black Stars’ to support the Ghanaian football team. The lively, colorful music video is frequently broadcasted on the national TV channels.
