CD Forum, KEXP & 206 Zulu present Kitchen Sessions

February 1 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Join CD Forum, KEXP, and 206 Zulu at Washington Hall for an unforgettable night of food and drink, live performance, and intimate dialogue with some of Seattle’s most inspiring Black artists—and a celebration of the Black musical icons that inspire them.

Hosted by award-winning poet and Person of Letters, IMANI SIMS, “Kitchen Sessions: Music That Inspires” will amplify the voices of Black female-identifying and gender non-conforming artists like: 

–> storyteller SHOLONDA HIGGINS
–> contemporary dance artist TAQUEET$
–> cellist EBONY MIRANDA
–> poet/filmmaker KAMARI BRIGHT



Your ticket price includes dinner and drinks at the start of the night, after which you’ll enjoy live performances by, and conversation with, the featured artists.


Why is it called a KITCHEN SESSION?
The kitchen seems like the place where nourishment is found. Not only food, but also valuable lessons. Little girls go from childhood to the kitchen. At some point, we graduate into womanhood. 

What is the rite of passage that allows you to enter the sacred space of the kitchen? It functions as an epicenter, a doorway into a space where it is safe to examine the crooked room. It is safe to talk about the long list of things we experience as Black women. As our hands conjure nourishment, our mouths begin to form spells, and we reshape our reality for a moment.
