The Department of Music is pleased to host the second of their Music Industry Q&A Sessionwith top level industry professional Nabihah Iqbal.
Our Music Industry sessions gives you an opportunity to hear from top level industry professionals, and to have a chance to ask them questions about their work, and about music careers in general. It’s a great opportunity to have direct contact with well established musicians, and to get some inside scoop on what it takes to establish a career in music.
About the speaker
Many musicians like to speak of versatility, but Nabihah Iqbal (Producer, writer, DJ) has better grounds than most. She boasts an MPhil (focused on African history) from Cambridge, experience working in human rights law and a black belt in Karate. Formerly known as Throwing Shade, she’s ditched that moniker to embrace the name she was born with. Readying her debut album for Ninja Tune, ‘Weighing of the Heart’ is a big statement in two ways: first, because she’s taken her real name to stand proudly as a female British Asian artists making music and, secondly, because she’s moved her music in a bolder, more expansive direction
