Female composers, DJs and producers are and have always been part of the musical present. Nevertheless, they are hardly mentioned in the big, male-dominated narratives of music history. The concert and film series Female to Empower therefore aims to tell the little-heard small and big stories of music from an exclusively female perspective.
To this end, Female to Empower combines music documentaries with live concerts to not only provide a historical-documentary retrospective, but also a contemporary look at the musical work of women* in popular music.
The series delves into the biographies and working worlds of female musical pioneers, who are not only intended to serve as role models, but also to show perspectives and strategies.
