Über die Veranstaltung
This documentary explores African pop and women’s visibility in the music industry in Ghana.
The literal translation of ‘Adikoro’ would be ‘one and the same’. It refers to the demand that women receive the same opportunities and possibilities in the music industry as men. Female artists are not treated ‘one and the same’ in terms of payment, performance opportunities or radio and TV play, and so are disadvantaged.
The word Adikoro which comes from Asante Twi, refers to the idea that women, specifically in Ghana, have the same skills and the same talent as their male counterparts. They have played their part in the Ghanaian music history, but we don’t read or hear so much about their contributions, and Pamela Owusu-Brenyah felt the need to talk about it and document it. Her goal with this documentary is to have a substantial impact on people not just in Germany and outside of the African continent, but also within Ghana, initiating a conversation there on this topic.
We will screen the film and have a conversation with Pamela Owusu-Brenyah on her experiences with the production and with her own experiences as a DJ in the music industry.
