Mahalia Anounces ‘Sisters in Sound’ Supporting Women In The Music Industry
11 Feb 2022
Songstress Mahalia has announced the launch of ‘Sisters in Sound’ – a new workshop and event series for young women of colour that aims to address the imbalance of opportunities in the DJ and music production scenes.
Working with youth-led charity Small Green Shoots, as part of the Dr. Martens’ Tough As You initiative, financial help, industry guidance and vital creative advice, will be delivered all with the aim of platforming grassroot underrepresented talent.
Targeted at 16-24-year olds the series begins at the end of February and will include four workshops focusing on: DJing, music production, content editing, and live event management.
Speaking on the venture Mahalia said: “I honestly couldn’t be prouder to be a part of the Tough As You initiative. Supporting an organisation like Small Green Shoots just felt right to me.”
She added: “After all of the help and support that they directly gave to me when I was a brand new artist, getting to do something like this with them really is a full circle moment. I’m looking forward to meeting everyone taking part and can’t wait to see the showcase!”
The programme will end with a live showcase on International Women’s day on March 8 2022, at London’s Tileyard Gallery.
