Many Voices playlist: Arlo Parks, Green Velvet, NAO and more

As the first Commissioning Editor in the Many Voices programme, I’m going to be looking at the experiences of underrepresented voices in Scottish arts and culture and to run alongside this project, I’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 for me to share some new acts and fresh releases. Here are this week’s top picks, and as always, you can expect a mix of genres, countries and sounds.
