‘One good thing about music’ sang Bob Marley is that ‘when it hits you, you feel no pain.’ But what is it about Black British music that makes it so defining, affecting and compelling? WritersMosaic brings together musicians, poets and chroniclers to explore the extraordinary heterogeneity of black music. They include the Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter Julian Marley, London-based duo An Alien Called Harmony who will be giving a dynamic duo performance of their eponymous EP, and the poet Carol Leeming performing Praise Song for Black Divas. The evening is hosted by the writer and cultural critic Jeffrey Boakye, author of Musical Truth: A Musical Journey Through Modern Black Britain.
