About Time #2: A Tribute To Female Artists of Colour
Tuesday 14 September 7.00pm
Janelle Ashley presents the second instalment of ABOUT TIME: A TRIBUTE TO FEMALE ARTISTS OF COLOUR.
A night to pay tribute specifically to the female artists of colour who have empowered her personally, as a fellow female musician of melanated skin, and who are shaping the affectionate and sultry genre of R&B.
There is no denying the fact that R&B/Soul has been moulded by artists of colour throughout the ages.
We will uplift their lives rather than tear them down.
We will sing their gorgeous music with ecstatic pride.
We will celebrate all females of colour, artists and all, who have been stepped on for being different.
Expect to hear music from the likes of Puerto Rican goddess Sabrina Claudio, the mixed Filipino prodigy H.E.R and to the African-American neo-soul queen herself Erykah Badu.
So mark your calendars, message all your friends – leave sticky notes all around the house so you don’t forget – it’s gonna be one party of a night!
We wish to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which this event is held, the Whadjuk people. We acknowledge and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life of this city and this region
