Lavender Rodriguez (Tales From Other Worlds)

Manchester based, Hampshire grown Lavender Rodriguez explores afro-futuristic sounds, spinning plates of afrobeat, alternative soul/RnB and electronic dance music simultaneously. Their music celebrates the intersectionality of queerness, mixed race and life experience of what was before and what’s to come.
Whilst creating music and playing bass for bands Pedro Pedro Pedro and Millie Milner and the Deadnames, Lavender teaches at BIMM Manchester, partakes frequently in activism and outreach work, having worked with Manchester Camerata and Black Lives in Music.
They also have founded the promotions company, Tales From Other Worlds, that promotes and organises DIY, multi-media experienced gigs with an emphasis on storytelling and diversity, celebrating artists and musicians primarily from underrepresented communities within the music industry.
To top it off, they work as a freelance booking agent for From The Fields, Cosmic Glue Label and Broken Thought Records (Cameron Sanderson)
