BlackFest BLM Soundscape LIVE
#BHM2020 | As part of Liverpool Black History Month, which shines a spotlight on and highlights the part that arts can play in affecting change in justice + equality in our communities.

BlackFest presents a LIVE online digital performance of the BlackFest BLM Soundscape. This piece has been put together by varied creative voices: writers, singers and poets mostly Liverpool based, UK nationwide and an international artist. It is a creative response in solidarity to the BLM movement and the full compilation is an anti-racist, commissioned collection of poems and spoken word celebration pieces of what it means to be Black and on Blackness.

The soundscape includes backdrops of afro beats, jazz tones and atmospheric feel to give the audience an immersive experience of the BLM movement felt by all. Sound engineered and Produced by: Breezy idegoyke

Written by: Aleasha Chaunte, Blu Boy, Breezy Ideygoke, Ash Nugent, Gavin Odhiambo Davies, Maureen Chioma Amadi, Raven Radha, Pari Richards, Umrana Afzal, Nathan Geering. Manoka Mbolokele, Mo Svendsen, Claire Beerjeraaz, Gabby Ellison, Susan Goligher, Kel Nkondock, Dayzy, Stephanie Robinson, L Beech, Jubeda Khatun, Viviana Aziaka and Tia Jennings.
