Art & Culture

WOW Sounds, part of the WOW – Women of the World Festival, are hosting a series of specially filmed musical performances throughout March, paired with a discussion as part of the festival’s ‘In Conversation’ events.

Streaming until 21st March, the programme will shine a light on women, girls and non-binary artists from around the world that use their music as a form of activism, provoking intersectional conversations around gender inequality and more.

The WOW Sounds line-up will feature performances from UK and international artists including Nubya Garcia, Fatoumata Diawara, Miss Baby Sol, Anoushka Sankar, Asmaa Hamzoui and Ayanna Witter-Johnson.

The In Conversation events will explore themes such as sex during lockdown, radical childcare and gender equality in the tech industries. There will also be an interactive digital workshop programme including a session on decolonising songwriting with songwriters Emily Wurramara and Aine Tyrell and a mass singalong with WOW Virtual Big Sing, alongside discussion groups for those wanting to participate in conversations around specific subjects such as radical childcare and intersectionality.

The previously announced WOW Live at the Royal Albert Hall, which was due to take place on 8th March, has been postponed due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions.

Tickets start from £1 or audiences can buy a pass to watch the whole season from £25. Visit the website for more information and the full WOW Festival 2021 programme or book HERE
