BNA-BBOT is a member of the Ecouter le Monde project, a project led by Radio France International (Monica Fantini) in partnership with BNA-BBOT, the Benedetto Marcello Conservatory in Venice, and the E-Jicom School of Journalism and New Media in Dakar.
Écouter le Monde evokes cultures, languages and imaginations through sounds from Africa, America, Asia, Europe and Oceania. A Parisian morning in the hubbub of the metro with its slamming doors, another at the Bobo-Dioulasso market with the harangues of the vendors, a journey into the childhood sound memories of an inhabitant of the banks of the Danube, an excursion near the crackling glacier in Argentine Patagonia or even midnight sounded by the bells of Saint Mark's Square in Venice. All forms are explored: mosaics, Polaroids, snapshots, scenes from daily life, the suitcases and sound memories of inhabitants, artists and journalists... Écouter le Monde is also an internet platform whose vocation is to publish the sounds of the world, echoes of our daily lives, our territories and our humanity. This database aims to develop the practice, meaning and pleasure of listening. Écouter Le Monde is a project supported by RFI, E-Jicom, the École Supérieure de Journalisme, des Métiers de l'Internet et de la Communication in Dakar, the association BNA-BBOT Bruxelles Nous Appartient - Brussel Behoort Ons Toe -, the Benedetto Marcello Conservatory of Music in Venice and the Atelier du Bruit in Paris.
Écouter le Monde is broadcast every Saturday at 16:25 GMT, Sundays at 03:37 GMT and 05:55 GMT on RFI, and in Africa on Sundays at 07:25 GMT.View related productions and events
