“Big Dada is relaunched as a label run by Black, POC & Minority Ethnic people for Black, POC & Minority Ethnic artists [for lack of a better term].
A team of like minded individuals working together to form a community that champions, shines a light on, supports & nourishes the music & artists.
Working to amplify Black and radicalized artists voices, Big Dada looks to shift the narrative around this music, bypassing stereotypes to allow and encourage freedom to express oneself for who they are and want to be.
Big Dada has a long history and heritage, which will be built upon whilst deepening its cultural identity by supporting & offering resources to a new generation of artists.”
