As a response to the isolation and uncertainty of the pandemic, BIAP invited a few brilliant minds to a digital stage to share their magic. In February 2021, we began our Virtual Open Mic series, with the intention of building community with Black artists around the world. So far, we have been in community with Black artists from : Mexico, Puerto Rico, Germany, the Dominican Republic, the United States, and our base, the Nation of Hawaiʻi.

Here are some of the artists who have been featured on our digital stage:
