Show Map

Leeds Corn Exchange

Call Lane, Leeds, LS1 6DG

Kanya King CBE founded the MOBOs in 1996, and is recognised as a major player in the music industry, especially in upholding music of Black origin. In the MOBOs and Me, we discuss what it was like being a woman in the music industry then and now, and the challenges of being a Black woman in a very white and male-dominated scene. We’ll be discussing the current state of play for women and POC, and looking to what the goals are today, now that mainstream music is slowly being held more accountable for its lack of diversity?
