SEMA is the Santuri Electronic Music Academy

The first of its kind in the region, SEMA is a dedicated program that offers deejaying and music production courses.  SEMA blends progressive pedagogy with an innovative curriculum that gives as much space to traditional music practices as to contemporary experimental processes. Our cultural programming gives students new insights and perspectives and builds better artists. Our integration into regional and global networks and industries provides our alums with the connections and inspiration to build meaningful careers.

SEMA was established  with support from Goethe-Institut's Jenga CCI on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development in collaboration with the GIZ.
