Many Voices playlist: Arlo Parks, De La Soul, KeiyaA, DJ Sliink and more

As a Commissioning Editor in the Many Voices programme, I’m looking at the experiences of underrepresented voices in Scottish arts and culture and to run alongside this project, I publish 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:
