Nine Nights Is Bringing Black Art To A Screen Near You

Food for the soul.


Nine Nights is the latest live streaming event you didn’t know you needed. Showcasing music, performance, spoken word, and poetry from curated Black artists from around the globe, the series aims to support artists who have been stripped from their incomes by COVID-19, whilst further supporting Black-focused charities. 

Nine Nights, or Dead Yard, is a Caribbean tradition that celebrates the life of the deceased over a span of nine nights. Friends and family come together with food, drink, and music to honor the loved one and the passing of their spirit to their resting place. 

Created by The Specular Empire label boss GAIKA, artists GLOR1A and Shannen SP and event producer Zara Truss-Giles, the new series, created in response to the Black Lives Matter movement, is dedicated to celebrating the lives of those lost to police brutality, racism, and Coronavirus. Nine Nights have confirmed their collaborations with a range of charities, including Hackney Caribbean Elderly Organisation, National Bailout Fund, and Justice 4 Grenfell, with events being planned in Manchester, New York, and Berlin. 

Line-ups include artists such as Chamber 45, Darka, Louis VI, and Mista Silva among a ton of others, with future shows set to feature Novelist, Zebra Katz, FKA, and more. Don’t sleep!
