Pretty Loud is the first Roma Girl Band.
It was started in the GRUBB Centres by a group of young women, participants and workshop leaders aged between 14-26.
Traditionally Roma women are homemakers, encouraged to leave school early and marry young.
Pretty Loud is breaking this mould by creating their own unique music, performances, and literary projects that aim to speak out for the next generation of Roma women.
They proudly blend rap and hip hop vocal styling with ancestral Roma music, and contemporary and urban movement with traditional dance.
Through their lyrics and writing they talk about their everyday challenges and hopes as well as more complex topics such as race, representation, and social justice.
They are passionate about putting an end to stereotypes about both Roma people and women.
