About the Event: In this class, Onyejekwe will lead a vocal warm-up, break down the history of pop outside of the eurocentric lens and explore pop's roots in the African Diaspora. 8 participants will sing a 1-1.5 minute pop song cut of their choice. The goal for this masterclass is to teach artists to learn how to pull from their own authentic source and how to disengage from the assimilationist structures that have squelched our own unique artistry. Class will end with a Q&A open to all!
