»African Women in the Music Industry« (En)
Pop from the African continent has entered the global stage and is set to stay there. At least, the men will. Female acts are obviously disadvantaged in their representation. To get to the bottom of the socio-economic conditions that block women’s access and visibility in the local and global pop world, Afro-pop expert and Pop-Kultur curator Pamela Owusu-Brenyah travelled to Ghana to work with artists and experts from the music business. Having previously shown her documentary film »ADIKORO – Women in Music – Ghana« at Pop-Kultur 2021, she now wants to talk to the musicians Fave from Nigeria and Ria Boss from Ghana about their experiences in the African music landscape: How have their careers gone so far, where have the difficulties been, and what challenges have they had to overcome? An artist talk about gender equality in the music business.
