Ladies on Records
Ladies on Records is a curated multifaceted endeavour created to represent women's contribution to global and local music of the past decades. Ladies on Records tells the stories of women by the music they created. Ladies on Records' mission is to reshape and improve understanding and knowledge of female music from the 60s, 70s, and 80s from all over the world and make it re-discovered and appreciated again by the local and global audience. It sheds new light on female creation in music and exposes unspoken, forgotten, or neglected cultural, political, and aesthetic patterns. Ladies on Records' main goal is to tell the stories of female artists from the past in a new, contemporary way.

How does it work?
Ladies on Records is a curatorial venture. Its primary focus is female music caught on dusty records and tapes, in the hidden archives and back catalogs of the music labels from around the world. Therefor Ladies on Records specialises in the creation of music compilations released both in physical and digital but also in creating mixes, playing DJ sessions and writing stories about music and female singers.
