“Revolutionary street poetry, gospel jazz, empowering soul, political afrobeats, psychedelic art music, anti-apartheid freedom music and highlife emancipation styles.”
In VF Live – our favourite collectors take you inside their homes, record shops, and studios, for intimate mixes and performances.
Sound artist Peter Adjaye returns for his fourth set, with music that speaks truth to power in support of the Black Lives Matter movement:
“This special protest selection is a contribution to the struggle for inequality and injustice and for the support of Black Lives Matter cause. Importantly for me it’s about the unification of all peoples of all colours and many colours with the common goal to fight for all human rights.
It features a potent mix of revolutionary street poetry, gospel jazz, empowering soul, political afrobeats, psychedelic art music, anti-apartheid freedom music and highlife emancipation styles.”
