Genealogies of Rock Against Racism
Presented live at The Barbican in July 26, 2022
Genealogies of Rock Against Racism is a musical journey, a tracing of moments in the lines of descent and dissent that lead to, and exceed, the formation of Rock Against Racism, whose locations are the interrelated spaces of the plantation, the death camp, and the urban spaces of post war Afro Asian settlement and struggle, whose themes are mimesis and ambivalence, and whose wide-ranging musical selection tells stories of deep listening and also gives sonance to a critical silence in the sound of RAR.
