Host City

You are invited to attend the 40th World Conference of the International Council for Traditional Music, which will be held from 1-8 July 2009 in Durban South Africa, hosted by the University of KwaZulu-Natal Howard College Campus, in cooperation with the South African Department of Arts and Culture and the South African National Commission on UNESCO.

With a population of 3 ½ million, Durban is the second largest metropolitan area in South Africa. Durban's unique blend of African, Asian and European cultures truly reflects the people of South Africa. This vibrant city where the conference will be held is famous for its Zulu dancing, traditional hand-woven baskets, carved wooden sculptures, clay pots and beadwork. The city lies on the shoreline of a protected bay and is one of the few cities in the world where harbour, water sports and beachfront facilities are only a block or two away from the central business district. In one day you can travel from forest to grasslands, seashore to mountains, modern city to rustic village. Natural treasures include the soaring Drakensburg Mountains and St. Lucia Wetlands where fresh and salt water meet to create a unique ecosystem.

Accommodation is varied and plentiful with over 47 000 tourist beds available, which range from luxury-budget hotels to bed and breakfasts, guest lodges and clean University residence.
