Aniefiok Ekpoudom & Gary Younge: Where We Come From

Thursday 22 February

Within the British music scene, recent years have borne witness to underground genres emerging from the inner cities, going on to become some of the most popular music in the nation.

 

In Where We Come From (Faber), journalist Aniefiok Ekpoudom travels the country to explore the dawn, boom and subsequent blossoming of UK rap and grime. Taking us from the heart of south London to the West Midlands and South Wales, he explores how a history of migration and an enduring spirit of resistance have shaped the current realities of these linked communities and the music they produce. These sounds have become vessels for the marginalised, carrying Black and working-class stories into the light.

Ekpoudom will be in conversation with Gary Younge, journalist and author of Dispatches from the Diaspora (Faber).

Join us for Apéro Hour before the event. The Cake Shop will be open from 5.30 p.m. for pre-booked drinks and snacks. Select your Apéro add-on from the ticket drop down.
