Female empowerment in music is not a new idea. It is the result of a long process requiring constant effort and diligence in working towards a goal where much progress has been made, but there is still much work left to do. Like most modern industries in the entertainment field, the music industry has a history of locking women into gender stereotypes.
The music industry is no exception. Women only account for only 16% of artists, 12% of composers and 3% of music producers.
The presence of female members has always existed, but has not always been praised, promoted, invested or allowed as it should.
Today, we write in honor of those women who managed to start the bases for the industry to have a greater openness and who have struggled to continue accompanying us with great songs.
In G13 we feel inspired by women who bet on themselves and the truth and soul in their work. In recent years, artists of the local scene have shown us talent and strength in different areas. Here we leave you a list of them so you can get to know what we consider the most powerful artists of this year:
Indee is undoubtedly one of the most representative artists of the urban genre. She also has established her career as a dancer and choreographer. These qualities come together to make her stage presence unique and she’s known for her powerfully charismatic and energetic performances. She has participated in legendary festivals such as the famous Glastonbury Festival (UK) and the Trinity Hip Hop Festival (NYC).
Aitana Lopez Vilaplana a.k.a Nyah, is a young Valencian singer who in addition to having a unique voice, writes songs with a unique sensitivity. This was undoubtedly inspired by the people around her, and her life experiences. It stands to reason then that she transmits a genuine sincerity in every word of her song lyrics.
Delight is a Catalan duo formed in 2019 by Naima Ventura and María del Río. In their creative process they give way to experimentation. This leads to them composing honest and visceral songs in which they sincerely and fearlessly express their deepest concerns and feelings.
Venezuelan hip hop has a female voice in Europe thanks to the talent of Claudia Cedeño, better known as Cecé. An artist and music producer who is a natural and skilled R&B artist who fuses elements of pop music to incorporate into her compositions, making them more accessible and eye-catching.
