All our wiminz: Celebrating Women in Music

#np

Yes, I’m still playing this album. Mutapona. 🙂

So it’s the 15th of March, meaning we are firmly halfway through the month. I don’t know if you guys know but apparently, in some parts of the world, it is Women’s month (We just celebrated Women’s day).

Every month is women’s month to me, but I like the idea of taking out a specific period to really celebrate women, and in our case, women in music. So I’m doing it.

From the 15th of March to the 15th of April we are going to try and cover as many incredible female artists who have, and continue to make strides in the music industry.

And we are not just talking singers/rappers either. We will be covering composers, producers DJs etc. We will also be covering the legends and the up-and-comers.
