On Saturday, April 10th, Kukuza Fest is returning! This year, it's all about Black Women in Family Music! Join me as I have a virtual round table with two of the event's featured artists, Ms. Niki's Music Class and Kymberly Stewart and the event host Joy Marille about problems faced by female BIPOC artists, how their music motivates and inspires, and what you can expect from the virtual celebration of diversity in kids and family music.
Kukuza Fest is brought to you by Family Music Forward, an organization that aims to promote diverse voices and is committed to ensure that families of all kinds are musically represented. They have been leading very productive efforts, especially in the wake of recent events such as the Grammy controversy and the spate of attacks against Asian-Americans. I am a proud volunteer for this wonderful organization, and you can learn more on how to support them here.
Enjoy the show and happy everything!
