ARETHA'S ANTHEMS BY BLACK VOICES QUINTET
Black Voices Quintet pay tribute to the Queen of Soul, the late great Aretha Franklin.
With a voice that was bred from gospel, blues and jazz, Franklin's work across her 50 year career was immeasurably important not just in terms of her cultural impact in 20th century America but also with the countless artists whom she inspired, who consequently helped to shape the golden age of US soul in the 50s and 60s.
Founded by a group of musicians and scholars in 1987 with the mission statement to preserve black oral music traditions, Black Voices Quintet have performed to Nelson Mandela at Royal Albert Hall and played alongside Nina Simone, Miriam Makeba, Ray Charles and Hugh Masekela.
Presented by The Blues Kitchen Manchester.
This is an 18+ event.
