Bandcamp June 19th fundraiser - recommend music by black artists

Discussion in 'music' started by Coda II, Jun 16, 2020.

    This Friday Bandcamp are "donating 100% of our share of sales to the NAACP* Legal Defense Fund, a racial justice organization with a long history of effectively enacting change through litigation, advocacy, and public education." (*National Association for the Advancement of Colored People)

    It therefore seems an ideal opportunity to concentrate on music by black artists, not because we don't buy music by black artists at other times but because at this time, and on this day, we can focus on black voices whilst also channeling funds towards an organisation whose Vision Statement is:
    The vision of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is to ensure a society in which all individuals have equal rights without discrimination based on race.

    So, Bandcamp recommendations for June 19th please.

    I'm slightly nervous of what could be seen as band-wagon(sic) jumping, but donating at this time is probably a good thing.

    Here is the link to Algiers, a politically active bunch, with a liking for Black Panther influenced lyrics.

    Here is their own statement and a fundraiser via Bandcamp.

    If you fancy something pretty noisy (mad drums and synths) then maybe Nihiloxica - Kaloli might fit the bill.

    Thank you - so glad I put up the question now. Moses Boyd was the only name I was familiar with previously and have only listened to a track off each so far but all good stuff. The Makaya McCraven is the one that is really drawing me in so far.

    Not on Bandcamp, but his reworking of the final Gil Scott-Heron album is well worth a listen.

    all the BJORK studio albums are on the site with proceeds to BLM UK for the fundraiser day
