Africa Utopia - The Music That Made Us at Purcell Room - Southbank Centre in London

Event description

Part of Africa Utopia - MUSIC - THE MUSIC THAT MADE US - Despite creating the sound now immortalised in musical history, Black musicians often did not reap the financial rewards of their talent. The birth of the blues often saw artists concealing the markers of their blackness at the behest of commercial record labels. Today, Dave’s ‘Black’ tops the charts and JHUS’s diasporic rap dominates dancefloors nationwide. This panel looks back at this journey, celebrates and interrogates; what does it mean if Black is the new blueprint for independent success?

SPEAKERS: Stonebwoy, Eve, Smade, Chaka Pilgrim
