Melanin: NikNak

Melanin is a monthly show by Leeds based producer, turntablist, DJ and broadcaster NikNak where she showcases Black music from around the world and across genres.

For May's edition of "Melanin", and fresh from a very calming retreat, NikNak delves into storyteller-mode; using music to retell her experiences and what she learned during her time away. She also invites us to listen deeply in silence and see what comes up within ourselves. Featuring tracks from Grant Green, Romarna Campbell, Dorothy Ashby, Harleighblu and many more.
