A brilliant exhibition charting a 100 years of Black British music is currently showing at the Black Cultural Archives. Black Sound shines a spotlight on the artists, musicians, promoters and punters who all assisted in propelling the music not just across the UK but worldwide.
The exhibition utilises multi-media including sound, photography, moving image, vinyl, cassettes and archive material to present the dynamic story of Black music through various stages.
Black Sound is curated by Lloyd Bradley, author of the critically-acclaimed Sounds Like London: 100 Years of Black Music in the Capital (which I highly recommend, and will definitely provide some context for the exhibition). Admission is free with audio-guided tours costing £3.
Opening hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 10.00am – 6.00pm; last entry 5.30pm.
Black Sound, Black Cultual Archives (BCA), Windrush Square, Brixton, SW2 1EF.
