The President of the Republic of Congo, Denis Sassou Nguesso, on an official visit to UNESCO on the occasion of the 165th session of the Executive Board, will attend the ceremony (4.15 p.m., Foyer des Conference).
Congolese personalities, among them the Minister of Culture, Arts and Tourism, Jean-Claude Gakosso, will also attend the event, as will Cameroonian musician Manu Dibango, who is himself a UNESCO Artist for Peace.

Saxophonist Jean Serge Essous is a cofounder of the band “Bantous de la Capital,” in Brazzaville, and of the Afrika Team in Paris. He was designated UNESCO Artist for Peace in recognition of his contribution to the promotion of the ideals of UNESCO through his artistic activities.
