"It’s a lot of pressure, but I never quit if I believe I can aim higher."
Multi-talented YouTube beauty guru and musician, Bambi Bains, will be featured in a documentary that celebrates Asian female empowerment.
BAMBI: Music & Female Empowerment, created by Unique Productions, seeks to expose the struggle faced by female musicians when trying to break into the British Asian music industry, and to discuss feminism and its current state.
By documenting the journey of Bambi Bains, it hopes to gain meaningful insight from musicians, artists and industry professionals.
She says: “It’s time to break barriers for Asian women and show not only the industry, but also the world how capable we actually are.”
Bambi is on a mission to break free of traditions, stand by women and initiate important changes in the music industry to provide more support to female artists, which in turn will translate into an overall growth of the industry.
And she hopes to achieve this not only by showing viewers that women can strive in an extremely male-dominated industry, but also by using this platform to create more opportunities and become someone that young Asian girls can look up to.
Unique Productions have also launched daily update blog which aims to take readers on a feminist adventure by highlighting issues and gathering insight to the documentary.
Female empowerment is something that is constantly trending and spoken about on social media. Just take a look at the #WhatWomenWant campaign and #YesAllWomen – it’s clear that people want to talk about feminist issues.
However, despite the mass amount of support it gathers, there is also a lot of controversy and stigma attached to talking openly about women’s issues.
The Asian music industry has a long history of avoiding topics about female empowerment. Perhaps now is the best time to kickstart that conversation and listen to what the young, ambitious and successful talents have to say.
Bambi adds: “It’s a lot of pressure, there have been times where I wanted to give up, but I never quit if I believe I can aim higher.”
