Kitchen Sessions: Music That Inspires
Come to the table with CD Forum, KEXP, and 206 Zulu for an unforgettable night of food, drink, performance, and conversation with some of Seattle's most inspiring Black artistsand a celebration of the Black musical icons that inspire them.
Hosted by award-winning poet and Person of Letters, IMANI SIMS, "Kitchen Sessions: Music That Inspires" will amplify the voices of Black female-identifying and gender non-conforming artists -- like storyteller SHOLONDA HIGGINS; breakdancer TAQUEET$; cellist EBONY MIRANDA; and poet/filmmaker KAMARI BRIGHT -- and put you directly in conversation with the artists about their work, and the music that inspires them.
WHAT ARE KITCHEN SESSIONS?
--> An opportunity to highlight and celebrate Black female-identified and gender non-conforming artists.
--> An opportunity to reflect on, and discuss, art with the artists.
--> An opportunity for intergenerational dialogue.
The kitchen seems like the place where nourishment is found. Not only food, but also valuable lessons. Little girls go from childhood to the kitchen. At some point, we graduate into womanhood.
What is the rite of passage that allows you to enter the sacred space of the kitchen? It functions as an epicenter, a doorway into a space where it is safe to examine the crooked room. It is safe to talk about the long list of things we experience as Black women. As our hands conjure nourishment, our mouths begin to form spells, and we reshape our reality for a moment.
