Kokoro is an avant-garde and engaging feminist singer/songwriter and performer. Described by her audiences as "the epitome of being yourself" and “an anarchic, hybrid, hippie punk”, she entertains with a mixture of edgy song and provocative spoken word.

She performs regularly in local venues and festivals,  and campaigns and organises events to encourage participation of women musicians in open mic nights.



Resident DJ at the Todmorden Women’s Disco Mandy Waters joins us to play her eclectic mix of music exclusively by female artists only! Todmorden Women’s Disco is 30 years old. It was started by a women’s collective who wanted somewhere to go dance and meet friends in a women only safe space and the money generated was to benefit women’s charities. Mandy was DJing there 25 years ago but became a permanent DJ 3 years ago when she moved back. Let’s dance!
