I was very happy to sit with Knar Bedian, Founder and Editor in Chief of Sound of Boston music blog. I discovered Sound of Boston before I started Above The Basement and I am a huge fan. I asked Knar on in the early days of ATB and she politely refused. But I kept at it and finally got her on the show.
Knar loves Boston, and like many of us, she wants to make sure people know how amazing and vibrant the Boston music scene is. But even beyond that, as a proud Armenian-American, Knar is a tireless activist, working to draw attention to the terrible violence and oppression happening in her ancestral Armenia. Sound of Boston has also been vocal about oppression here in Boston, as she recently wrote a great piece called A Musician’s Guide to Black Music History and Anti-Racism Resources, an anti-racism and music-focused educational resource to help create a more inclusive, safe, and just community (and music scene) for everyone.
We had a great conversation and I love the line they use on their site -
“While the world waits for a ‘Boston Sound,’ Sound of Boston is here to show you that it already exists—you just have to know where to look.
