Tune in here on Friday, September 11, for performances by Anjimile and Oompa livestreamed straight to your home from the MFA’s Calderwood Courtyard. Each performer plays for 45 minutes, with a 10-minute intermission between sets.

Anjimile is a Boston-based queer and trans singer-songwriter whose music draws on their early experiences with racism and homophobia while growing up in a suburb outside Dallas, Texas. They were named a Music Artist to Watch by NPR in 2019, and their debut album, Giver Taker, is available starting September 18.

Oompa is a poet, rapper, and educator, whose work reflects her experiences growing up queer and Black in Boston’s Roxbury neighborhood. She was a finalist at the 2016 National Poetry Slam and received the Unsigned Artist of the Year award at the 2018 Boston Music Awards. Her second full-length album, Cleo, was released in 2019.
