Take Back the Mic is a nationwide musical tour whose mission is to harness the power of Hip Hop music to spread a message of youth empowerment and civic action to youth around the world. As the kick off tour moves across the United States, local youth participation will be showcased online and become the basis of an upcoming documentary, “Making the Movement.”
Co-founded by multi-platinum pop legend Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics (through his company Weapons of Mass Entertainment), SplashLife, Inc. and SMT Films, Take Back the Mic is dedicating all of its upcoming performances as part of the Daniel Pearl World Music Days global network of concerts. Bringing together real people, real voices, and real ideas; Take Back the Mic is about encouraging youth to turn the tide of our culture into something that builds us up, more than it breaks us down.
The iniital Take Back The Mic tour features:
Hip Hop/Afropolitan fusion band Soulfège whose works have aired in over 50 countries and been featured in major media including BBC Worldservice, ABC Chronicle and MTV Africa
Jamaican singing sensation Nadirah X, who is supporting Pink on tour in the UK
This is no ordinary concert tour. Soulfège and Nadirah are on a mission to ignite a global youth movement.
