Beautiful Freaks S08E05: Young Women’s Music Project

This week we were joined by Zahra from the Young Women’s Music Project, who are very cool and also won the BBC Introducing Oxford Act of the Year 2016 Award. We talked about the ‘herstory’ of YWMP, women in the Oxford music scene, and the divide in Oxford between city and university which we should all be more aware of. Of course, great tracks were played too.

In March, YWMP is organising the WO-MAN-ITY Festival at the Pitt Rivers Museum. The line-up looks amazing, with music and talks, and it’s free! You just need to reserve your place – see here.
