Listen to “I’m That Woman” by Toyin Adekale and friends in commemoration of International Women’s Day 2023.
Time For My Music is there for all women who see a future in music when they look ahead. The industry is still male-dominated and there’s a lot to learn and do in order to open space for women. This community aims to close that gap by providing training and resources related to the music business.
International Women’s Day 2022 is the perfect day to share with you “I’m That Woman”, the latest song by Toyin Adekale, in which I play the sax. This track is the culmination of a dream by Toyin, who composed it, and of sisterhood.
I bet that’s not a question most people ask themselves frequently. We are used to sweep that kind of topics under the rug. However, this is only a disservice to the entire community of musicians, including those that undergo menopause and those who don’t. For that reason, I wrote an article with all about it for the Musicians’ Union.
Last Monday, we commemorated International Women’s Day. We had the opportunity to reflect and have a conversation about the issues that still stand in the way of gender equality. It is important that we don’t let the interest die with the change of day. That’s why today I recommend the reading “Gender Disparity In UK Jazz – A Discussion”.
From 8pm to midnight today, enjoy the prowess of female artists and reflect on the fight for equal rights of women around the world. Music, poetry, dance and plastic arts will serve to remember Nina Simone’s four women and the thousands of real women each one of them represents, celebrating their achievements so far and gathering energy for what is to come.
The jazz bar and café RJJZ (Arch 24, 208 Livery Street, Birmingham) will celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8th with a showcase of female talent. Millicent will join with her music.
