AT BOSSYxx, WE WANT TO SEE
MORE GIRLS MAKING MUSIC!
(xx – that’s the female chromosomes, not kisses)
Based in Yangon, Myanmar, we promote female musicians and organize concerts with a majority of female artists and invite performers living in other S.E. Asian countries to drive cultural awareness, musical diversity and to inspire more and more girls to pick up drumsticks, guitars, mics etc.
In Myanmar, women outnumber men by over 2 million, however, women are hugely under-represented in the music scene.
While female singers feature occasionally in the top 20 bands in Myanmar, they predominantly sing “copy tracks” (plagiarized translations of popular western songs) and where original music is being made, women play little to no role in the creative process of composing or producing.
