In celebration of International Women’s Day (Mar 8th) and National Women’s History Month, the Echo Chamber presented its annual “Beautiful Sounds of Women…Around the World” special. And what a fantastic list of women we had on this year’s show. In Dr. StrangeDub’s half of the program the list included: Leah Rosier, DJ Vadim & Sena, Anuhea, Dubblestandart (feat. Marcia Griffiths), Rhia Creole Lawrence & the Dub Master, Blondub Sexy Sound (Orly Frider), 60 Channels (feat. The Angel), Andrea Parker, Sharon Black, Sonya Spence, Jah Wobble & Julie Campbell, Kali Uchis, Hollie Cook, Sahra Indio, Nneka, Easy Star All Stars (feat.

Judy Mowatt), Anouk Aiata & Taiwan MC, SXtheMadArtist (Stalo Xinari), and Trumystic (feat. Kirsty Rock). And if the doctor’s mix wasn’t eclectic enough, DJ Baby Swiss stretched things even further. His list included Poly Styrene, Mimi Maura, The Widdler (remixing Lily Allen), Ill:Esha, Sena & Judi K, The Selecter (feat. Pauline Black), Joan Osborne, Palemina (Smith), The Slits (feat.

So hats off to all the great lady singers & players in this year’s special. Of course, many ladies were missed…so we will fill out the rest of National Women’s History Month with many more beautiful sounds of women!
