Opportunity – Bass Culture Research: mapping the impact of #Jamaican music on the UK

 Call out for 2 x volunteer archive researchers
to be based at Black Cultural Archives, Brixton
Project background
Bass Culture is a three-year AHRC-funded exploration of the impact of Jamaican and Jamaican-influenced music on British culture. Covering the period from the mid-1960s to the present day, with a focus on London and a particular interest in the years 1976 – 1981, Bass Culture explores the profound ways in which this island’s music remade popular music in Britain.  We look at how fundamental music was in the emergence of multicultural in the British city and the redefinition of the post-colonial nation. The term ‘Bass Culture’ acknowledges both the Caribbean cultural origins of sound system practices and their ongoing role in framing British urban experience across ethnic, local and regional contexts.
This multi-strand research project unites a multi-disciplinary group of scholars, practitioners, researchers and cultural producers who will produce a series of exciting, accessible and innovative outputs including a comprehensive oral history, bespoke website, exhibitions, events and academic publications. Much of this work will be produced in collaboration with community partners and young people. Bass Culture is the first fully-funded academic investigation of the impact of Jamaican music and culture on Britain.
The work is led by PI Mykaell Riley of University of Westminster, alongside academic partners at SOAS, Leicester and Goldsmith’s.  We are seeking 2 individuals to support this project by conducting their own research into relevant material held at Black Cultural Archives. Primarily this will be through a review of music periodicals in the archive: Echoes (formerly Black Echoes) magazine, Straight No Chaser, and Black Music and Jazz Review. The research will also look at related material in the ephemera collection, Len Garrison’ papers and his research in to Reggae music and UK youth identity, as well as relevant material within the new Carl Kirton archive. This research would include but not be limited to identifying musical, cultural, political or artistic trends during the period covered by the magazines and archive material. 
      Further details of outputs of the project, dates required and eligibility can be found in the             attached pdf.

·         why you would like to volunteer for this project
