About this event

Music For Causes Discussion And Sing-along image

We know music tackles more than just love and nothingness. BritishBlackMusic.com/Black Music Congress founder and historical musicologist Kwaku will moderate a discussion with the audience and special guests about British black music records and videos that speak to specific causes, ideals or concepts.

He will play music that speak to causes, and the audience will be invited to suggest records, which will first be discussed with a view to drilling down what cause the song speaks to, then the record or video will be played and the audience encouraged to join in a sing-along.

This is meant to be a fun, family-friendly Zoom online event, where there is a recognition and appreciation of the British black songs that say something, which the audience is expected to proactively engage in!

A BritishBlackMusic.com/Black Music Congress, Music4Causes, Akoben Awards, BTWSC/African Histories Revisited and No Stress Who Comes Comes-led AntiUniversity Now event. Peep https://BBM.eventbrite.com and https://AfricanHistoryPlus.eventbrite.com for our music and history events.
