• Womens struggle still important

    15th of June 2012 · tags:

    Head of development at the Academy, Astrid Elbek, was in the 1970’s piano player in the woman band Shit og chanel. A new CD-box with the bands four records and some never released music will soon be released. Four of the five band members were candidates from The Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus.

    The band of five young women was both very ground-breaking and very popular at that time. But today it is still a problem that only very few women are going to be instrumentalists in pop/jazz music.

    To day Astrid Elbek and the others are interviewed in the newspaper Børsen. There will be much more media hype over the next days. Yesterday TV2 Østjylland had a feature – look at it here.
