Friday 11 March 2016 Black Voices in South Brent Primary School. Formed in 1987 by its Music Director Carol Pemberton MBE, Black Voices, based in Birmingham, blends the melodies of Europe and the rhythms of Africa and has gained a reputation as Europe’s finest female a cappella quintet. For over 25 years they have captivated global audiences with their singing and performances in the black oral tradition – an early music form based on the ancient folklores and storytelling of Africa. Black Voices with their distinctive sound, harmonies and stunning stage presence have developed a unique repertoire and arrangement of spirituals, traditional African, Caribbean and English folk songs, jazz, gospel, pop and reggae as well as a fusion of contemporary and classical styles that has earned them worldwide recognition as a performance and teaching company. See http://blackvoices.co.uk/. A Villages in Action event. Refreshments available. Tickets from artworks or call 01364 72617.
