Soul Music: The Pulse of Race and Music

Front Cover
Gibson Square, 2012 - Music - 188 pages
Does (classical) music change the way we lead our life? In Soul Music novelist and former black activist Candace Allen investigates whether the pitched battles between 'our' music and 'their' music of her youth are alive among young people engaged in music study. Following the beat of music - from classical to black music - in her own life to places where different cultures meet, she visits Palestine, Venezuela, Scotland, the streets of London and Kinshasa. She is delighted to find a fresh and vibrant attitude that is very different from the tribal multiculturalism of the past. Candace Allen is a novelist and was the first African-American female member of the Directors Guild of America. Educated at Harvard, she grew up in Stamford, Connecticut, and has lived in Islington, London since the 1990s.
