Black History Month 2020 Music Celebration

Black History Month 2020 Music Celebration

Overview

To commemorate Black History Month 2020, we have created a celebratory film showcasing a selection of black music, performers and composers. Black music, or music of black origin, is hugely diverse and covers a wide range of genres.

The set list is intended to showcase a sub-set of a black music, and also to help shine a light on black classical music composers, whose achievements and impact have historically been overlooked. Featured in the film are: kora player Kadialy Kouyate, the Decus Ensemble, performing works by lesser-known and marginalised black classical composers, and the PowerHouse Gospel Choir, one of the most respected gospel choirs in the UK.
