Ladies of Hip-Hop (LOHH) is a nonprofit organization that provides artistic opportunities for girls & women in Hip-Hop culture. Through female-powered workshops, performances, public talks, and professional development training, LOHH is educating and cultivating Hip-Hop's next generation of female leaders.
This is our first official Ladies Hip-Hop podcast episode hosted by myself Michele Byrd-McPhee a.k.a. the LadyByrd featuring two of our favorite crew members DJ Bizzy Brown and DJ Mariella discussing that DJ life.
Michele has danced in music videos, battled in the club scene and traveled along as the Hip-Hop dance culture exploded onto stages, in studios, and in theaters. Being one of the few women dancing alongside groups of men, she became increasingly aware of the narrow opportunities for women in Hip-Hop.⠀⠀Michele most recently celebrated 14 years of presenting Ladies of Hip-Hop Festival. Michele provides organization and artist consulting services; production management services and continues to be an advocate for the Hip-Hop dance community, especially for women.⠀⠀I've known Michele since I was a broke 20 year old intern in NYC. Michele took a chance on me and extends opportunities to women all over the world through her company, Ladies of Hip-Hop Festival. We celebrate you!⠀⠀
