As its wonderfully affirming name attests, Black Girls Glow celebrates, supports and mentors young Ghanaian women in music and poetry. The burgeoning feminist collective and annual residency programme brings together both established and new talents to not only empower themselves but also the wider community of resilient female artist across the country. Oh, and they make great music too. With two strong and sonically diverse albums to their name so far - Mothers Of Heirs and HERmony - this is just the beginning of a journey that they hope will nurture artistry, leadership and entrepreneurship and ultimately lead to more women at the top of this male dominated game. Nataal met with co-founders Poetra Asantewa and Dzyadzorm and two of this year’s recruits, Boham and Raës, in Accra to discuss the importance of togetherness.
