B.A.S.S. is the platform that elevates me to a level of joy that could only be created by all the wonderful people that come through to our events. This whole project started as a feeling which turned into waves of love that have engulfed me with a sense of belonging and community. Those Sundays spent preparing the space then watching it come alive with beautiful conversation, traditional food and stunning performances, have lifted my spirits and carried me when I was heavy. I have so much love for the soul of B.A.S.S. and it's got me so gassed for what the future holds. I hope we can continue to grow in our efforts of holding space to celebrate, travel wide and explore our African identities.
