DJ software giants Serato are hosting a month-long five-part series of streams on their Twitch channel, celebrating the history of Black music in America.
Hosted by ethnomusicologist professor at Julliard’s department of music history, Dr Fredara Mareva Hadley, whose work looks at how people of African descent use music genres to construct and maintain community. She’ll be joined by DJ and producer Rich Medina for two of the episodes.
