Women in African Music

The organization Sounds of Africa organized a virtual museum celebrating “Women in African Music,” using the photography of British-Nigerian artist Michael Tubes. The exhibition shared photos of African women musicians, taken over the past ten years, in order to “highlight, celebrate and empower the challenges faced by women within the industry.” Though the exhibition’s run has concluded, this video from BBC News shares Tubes’ perspective on the collection as well as selections from the exhibition. And check out Sounds of Africa’s website to learn about their upcoming exhibitions.
