BLESZ beats & Anton de Kom, local icon

BLESZ 31/12/2020

BLESZ with the super chilled remixes, RnB and local stories, including this week a spotlight on wartime resistance fighter, Anton de Kom, one of many Amsterdam #BlackArchivesIcons, and a ‘Friendly Song’ from Quibus featuring Ihaka (details below).

Listen back

Listen back to the full 2-hour radio show, including music tracks, on the mixcloud player here:

The story about Anton de Kom comes in about 51:00.


“Recently, the mural on The Black Archives in Amsterdam was defaced. The images were devastating, in part because of the incredible people the art depicts. More people should know about these heroes – and not just in the Netherlands! To help broadcast their stories, I’ll be posting them every week under #BlackArchivesIcons and telling them Thursday mornings on Broadcast Amsterdam. We’ll start this week with Anton de Kom. Read more about it here.”
