OneBeat fellow Umlilo received a OneBeat Accelerator grant to support their project ‘Nkulukeo (Freedom)’. Nkulukeo is a workshop project designed to bring together queer musicians in modern-day Southern Africa to collaborate on songs about upliftment, healing, and freedom. The songs will be showcased in a special 1 hour Pride Edition podcast of Chakra Huns on Other Radio to mark the release of the EP, which will be available for streaming across several sites.
The project will take place in Johannesburg, Cape Town and surrounding areas. The workshop component will take place virtually, allowing artists in different Southern African countries (Namibia, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, and Mozambique) to take part.
