international women of disco funk: continental drift 3/29/23

Badala Zamana // Zohra (Algeria)
Set Me Free // Jaki Graham (Jamaican, based in the UK)
Color My Love // Fun Fun (Italy)

Peggy GouPeggy Gou is a producer, DJ, and artist from South Korea, currently based in Germany. Her song is the most recent song featured in this episode. Greta y los Garbo were a band of three sisters formed in Spain.

¡Menuda fiesta! // Greta y los Garbo

Ony Onyioha was one of Nigeria’s first female pop stars, and a key part in breaking the stigma that becoming a singer/musician was only for “educationally-challenged” women. The Lijadu Sisters are one of my favorites. They were two twins, Taiwo and Kehinde Lijadu, who combined jazz and disco/funk influences to create some of the best music from the 70s.

Nazia Hassan was featured with her brother Zoheb on “Disco Dewanee” from the Pakistan episode a few months ago. Here she is, solo, from the soundtrack to Star.

Saâda Bonaire – Lost Tape »1992« will be released – HHV Mag

Saada Bonaire

Saada Bonaire was formed in Germany in 1982 of singers Stefanie Lange and Claudia Hossfeld, producer Ralf Behrendt, and dozens of local instrumentalists. The band put out one single in 1982, but as it wasn’t successful, the rest of the album was never released- until now! The full album was released in 2018 and has become a favorite. 

Shut the Door // Saada Bonaire (Germany)
Mulher Homem Bicho // Ana Frango Eletrico (Brazil)
Law Laffeina El Ard // Maha (Egypt)

velvet 3/29/23

today on wrek radio, all shows are featuring women in music! on velvet, i’ll be showcasing some of my favorite women in the neo-soul/r&b scene today. these artists are from all over the world, including places such as atlanta, new zealand, norway, berlin, brazil, melbourne, portland, brooklyn, the bay area, london, paris, and the congo. these singers, songwriters, instrumentalists, producers, and djs all have a special place in my heart and deserve to be showcased! it’s a tough world for woman and non-binary artists to gain the same respect that their male counterparts. it’s so important to share the art of such amazing women in the scene!

i hope you enjoy~
