For the third year running, BritishBlackMusic.com/Black Music Congress (BBM/BMC) will be supporting the annual Make Music Day (MMD) with a DJ set by Kwaku BBM, livestreamed on the BBM Sounds channel on Mixcloud Live or Mixcloud.com/live/BBMed.
Music fans are encouraged to join the ‘British Black Music History 1912-2022’ – a century-plus journey through an eclectic mix of British black music, irrespective of genre or vintage, on Tuesday June 21, noon-midnight.
You can show your support by joining the livestream on Mixcloud at https://www.mixcloud.com/live/BBMed, where they can interact with the show through the chat facility, including making their musical requests.
