This Week's Free Lab Radio - Turkish Ladies on Records

 Polish record collector Kornelia Binicewicz lives in Turkey where she began Ladies on Records, a listening and digitising and uploading project for currently Turkish psychadealica from the 60s and 70s featuring the voices of Turkish women of the time.  The 60-70s saw a massive explosion in music all over the world which gave women the voice and platform with which to become renowned and express themselves not only musically,but also in fashion and the arts.
Binicewicz left her work in festivals in Poland to pursue a life in music in Turkey where she is now based. She was director of MiŚ Documentary Film Festival about Music for 8 years and program manager of the Jewish Culture Festival in Krakow for a while. Binicewicz calls her interests “Various cultures and worlds caught in dusty records and blurred memories” and explores Turkish female music through avidly collecting records, interviews, DJing and writing.
