    Lloyd Bradley, author of Sounds Like London: 100 Years of Black Music in the Capital, discusses a century of cultural contribution from the Commonwealth, and how it changed the face of British music.

    From jazz to calypso to soul to lovers rock to jazz/funk to Soul II Soul to jungle to garage to grime to dubstep to whatever was invented since you started reading this, thanks to a constant influx of musicians and ideas from countries such as Trinidad, Ghana, Nigeria, Jamaica, Sierra Leone, Guyana, Antigua and South Africa, British black music remains one of the world’s most fertile creative environments. In this talk Lloyd will join the dots to celebrate the spirit and ingenuity that connects Lord Kitchener to Courtney Pine to Janet Kaye to Stomzy to Rey BLK.
