Bia Ferreira (BRA)
Music is certainly the best weapon when you fight for love. And who then will ask who invented it and who owned it originally? Certainly not Bia Ferreira. The Brazilian singer, multi-instrumentalist and composer uses the rhythms of her homeland, Afrobeat, Reggae, Ragga and Rap to fight against racism, homophobia and discrimination of any kind. She calls this weapon MMP: short for Música de Mulher Preta, Music by Black Women.
