Description

As Dreamed Native Ancestry (DNA) draws to a close, join us for a discussion and sonic celebration of migration and the musical contribution of cultural diasporas to British culture.

Exploring the vitality of migration and mixing of musical forms will be our resident “mission crew” sound artists Dubmorphology (Gary Stewart and Trevor Mathison), along with multimedia artist and musician Derek Richards (aka HyperJAM aka rizomorph), music producer Mykaell Riley, and other special guests.
This event is free but we recommend booking a place.
