WHO OWNS MUSIC? 2/18/15 , 7-9pm *nyc — WBAI-FM Fundraiser

It is worth it just to hear Ahmed Abdullah, former bandmember of the Sun Ra Arkestra who came into his own with a blistering set of performances during the Loft Jazz sessions that emboldened and revitalized NY Jazz in the 70’s.


The popularity of the hit series Empire has let loose a flurry of conversation about the the hip hop industry’s inner workings and joins ongoing debates about the future of music and the music industry. With that backdrop, Suga in My Bowl presents a dynamic and timely discussion on the question of Who Owns Music with a focus on the present and future Jazz scene.

Admission: $15 at the door 

Additional donations toward WBAI radio are enthusiastically encouraged!


Date: Wednesday, February 18, 7-9 PM

Location: RAW SPACE, 2031 Adam Clayton Powell Blvd. 

(7th Avenue between 121st-122nd Streets)

At WHO OWNS MUSIC, we’ll discuss the role of “gatekeepers.” Who decides what music gets produced? Who decides what gets airplay? Who has access to clubs and gigs? Who shapes the opinions and ideas of what people hear? And what does this mean for listeners and the future of music? What can we do about it?

This event brings together musicians, writers and broadcast professionals to discuss these important issues and raise funds for listener-supported community radio!
