Many Voices playlist: Kali Uchis, Jamila Woods and more

Bella Caledonia’s newly announced Many Voices programme has launched with the aim to diversify the Scottish media. Through a series of funded posts, Commissioning Editors will be invited to work as part of the Bella team over a four-month period, focusing on a particular theme or subject. As the first Commissioning Editor involved in the programme, Arusa Qureshi will be looking at the experiences of underrepresented voices in Scottish arts and culture and to run alongside her project, she’ll be publishing a weekly playlist of new tracks by artists of colour. This will be a soundtrack of sorts to the Many Voices programme, but above all else, a great opportunity to discover some new acts and fresh releases. Expect a mix of genres, countries and sounds, as Arusa lists her top picks for the week.
