One of the most recognizable celebrities in the Ukraine and Russia is singer, DJ, and producer Ivan Dorn. He recently released his Adidas-sponsored music video that initiated phase one of his ‘Afrika Project’. The video was filmed in the beautiful Masaka region of Uganda, and showcases the impressive dance skills of children from the community. The ‘Afrika Project’s goal is to build a music and dance school for all local children who wish to attend, and is to be staffed by local workers from the surrounding communities. Ivan was inspired to start this unique project after witnessing the artistically talented youth in Masaka. Upon realizing that they had no school or organization to help foster their creative talents, he decided to launch an initiative to provide the children with more opportunities for development and future endeavours.
The multi-talented trendsetter Ivan Dorn has teamed up with Billboard and SPIN to premiere his new music video, which was released on April 5th. It is based on the notion that music and creative art can inspire young minds of any given community. Ivan is working on partnerships with CNN, Good Morning America, Billboard, Adidas, Samsung, JBL, and New York City music schools to make his vision a reality. Ivan, who also performed his magic at Fesstaal Kreuzberg on April 18th, does not shy away from ambitious goals, and is dedicated to making a significant change in these children’s lives.
Ivan’s ‘Afrika Project’ is an initiative whose ultimate goal is to build a dance and music school for the youth of the community. “When every single element counts, the whole thing feels that much more important” – says Ivan Dorn.
