Few Women in Music; L.A.’s Salsa Scene | Mar. 9
On the March 9 episode of SoCal Update, KPCC Arts and Entertainment Reporter John Horn discusses a new study that looks at the lack of representation of women in the music industry. KPCC Arts and Entertainment Reporter Mike Roe covers the lively state of L.A’s salsa scene despite the pandemic.
Even though artists like Taylor Swift, Beyonce and Rihanna are wildly popular, most other female performers remain outliers, according to a new report from the University of Southern California’s Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, which studied the most popular 900 songs over the past nine years.
The pandemic has not kept people off the dance floor. One of the salsa events that's been ongoing while L.A. County has been under COVID-19 restrictions is weekly outdoor dancing on the Venice Pier.
