The Black Madonna’s concert this Friday was on our radar anyway but when her agency wrote to ask if we’d like to interview her, we’d got excited and hopeful:

«I’m reaching out», wrote Anabelle Kemplen, «to check if you might be interested in setting up an interview with the DJ/producer The Black Madonna? On February 21st, she will perform at Nitsa, Barcelona to raise funds and awareness for refugees as part of he ‘We Still Believe: Choose Love Tour’. The organisation helps almost 1 million people, particularly those seeking asylum on the grounds of persecution for being LGBTQI in their home countries. Is this a topic you would be interested in discussing with The Black Madonna?»

Sadly, being the small editorial team that we are, a video interview wasn’t granted and we don’t have the resources to transcribe stuff last minute. That said, we support her mission wholeheartedly and will be attending the concert – paying for our tickets.

If the LGBTQI+ refugee subject interests you, check out Rea Bathgate’s article that we published some two years ago:

Love, The Editors.
