NEW BOOK ON BLACK MUSIC RELEASED IN UK
It not only features David Hinds, Selwyn Brown and Steve Nisbett from Steel Pulse but Lee Scratch Perry, Augustus Pablo and Junior Delgado.
A book of photographs by Pogus Caesar celebrating Britain’s iconic black musicians is to be published next month.
The book features evocative, nostalgic and largely unpublished images of musical legends like Stevie Wonder, Grace Jones and Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry.
“These images record a unique period in what would come to be called black British life,” remarks author and historian Paul Gilroy.
“Pogus Caesar’s emphatically analog art is rough and full of insight. He conveys the transition between generations, mentalities and economies.”
Legendary reggae artists figures prominently, and appropriately, in the Caesar image canon – Burning Spear, The Wailers, Augustus Pablo, Rita Marley, Mighty Diamonds, Black Uhuru, Sly Dunbar etc. The photographer cites reggae itself is a significant influence, reflecting his own St Kitts background in the Eastern Caribbean.
The launch of Muzika Kinda Sweet follows an exhibition of the work at the Oom Gallery in Birmingham earlier this year.
