Africa Open Institute for Music, Research and Innovation
The Africa Open Institute for Music, Research and Innovation (also known as the Africa Open Institute or AOI) is an independent and autonomous interdisciplinary institute in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at Stellenbosch University.
Founded in 2016 as an independent entity from the Music Department, the institute developed from the Documentation Centre for Music (DOMUS), to which it remains connected through its funding of the DOMUS archive, its intellectual and creative programmes, curating activities, archival collection initiatives and core vision of creating in DOMUS the largest open-access archive for music on the African continent. Professor Stephanus Muller was the founding director.
The work encompasses musical theatre and opera as well.
