“There are so few things in the world that truly connect us all and bring people together and music is one of them. It is one of the most important gifts we have as humans.” OKIEM


We continue our instagram live interview series this week with ’the secret to gentle living: soul’ with shesaid.so x A:live as I am joined by classical pianist, musician and composer Okiem. We are going to be speaking about the importance of music in times of uncertainty and how it can be used to heal before Okiem leads us in to a performance on the piano. Thursday, 6pm… see you there 🦋

Whilst so many of us would normally be heading out right now, instead our worlds have become smaller and more restricted than we have known in our lifetime. Music is so important as it brings us freedom and reminds us of the good times. 

Heading in to the weekend I have created a playlist for @charliedavies_9 & @thesoundgame filled with uplifting feel good house music to help to lift you up and remember that all this is temporary and we all be together again soon.

So many memories made in Amsterdam every year where the electronic music world collides for @amsterdamdanceevent. A chance to listen to some of the best DJ’s & Producers in the world and catch up with the people that make the music industry so unique.

Usually running around the city streets right now in between panels but instead we are hosting conversations online with forward thinking voices from across the world of music.

Guiding conversations on the below panels this week:

ADE’s online programming is brilliant this year if you haven’t checked it out yet. Fingers crossed next year we can bump in to one another again at a dark, sold out warehouse rave… ⭐️
