The weekend of 15 and 16 November was a memorable one for music lovers in Salvador Brazil. Fans were thrilled with Brazilian and world music and also important is the bands and projects were women-led. And we were there for it, love.

The event which happened at Commons Music Bar started with the incredible Héloa from Sergipe, Brazil. Launching her second new album ‘Opará’ which celebrates the ‘meeting of waters’ and her ancestrality.

After her delicious set which left all wanting more, Nigerian singer and composer Okwei Odili and her band Aweto came on and gave an incredible performance which won them more fans. The fantastic DJ Belle then gave us something to hit the road with. Known in Brazil as a ‘Saidera’. Check out Okwei!

The next day 16 was the day for African-American duo ‘Oshun‘. The hall which was packed full of happy and excited people sang and danced along with the inspirational and exceptional artists. Take a look.

It is a thing of beauty when people- women- especially African and of African origins taking the spotlight to inspire and show what they can. THANK YOU QUEENS.
