LATE 2017: Sing it Sister- Sexism in the Music Industry
Aotearoa New Zealand has a wonderful heritage of strong female pop, rock and R‘n’B musicians from the Yandall Sisters to Shona Laing to Ladi 6 to Lorde. What have they been up against in order to make it? How have they turned challenge into success? How many more wonderful musicians could New Zealand celebrate if we lead the international industry in challenging sexism in music?
This LATE will celebrate strong female musicians, explore future visions for the music industry and discuss local solutions to global cultures of sexism.
Moderated by comedian Rose Matafeo, who'll be joined by panelists Ladi6, Dianne Swann, Geneva Alexander-Marsters and Jessie Moss.
Entertainment: Bic Runga
