Contribute to the South London Black Music Archive

Posted at 3:00 pm, January 23, 2012 in Music & Nightlife

South London black music archivePeckham Space launches an interesting new project (until March 24) by Barby Asante exploring the history and evolution of black music in south London, and how it has influenced young people in the area. The exhibition bills itself as an ‘open archive’, meaning anyone with relevant experience can contribute, whether that’s by providing music, merchandise or memories in the form of tickets, posters, magazines or testimonies of personal experience. Asante plans to plot the connections between contributors to build an emotive overview of black music’s influence. Tate Modern are also contributing, having commissioned a special vinyl album of songs which have inspired LOT members, curated by Asante. This will be available to buy at Peckham Space and around south London for the duration of the show. Eddy Lawrence
