Soweto Kinch

The Black Peril is a dynamic new work by Soweto Kinch, inspired by the sounds of ragtime, proto-jazz, West Indian folk music and the classical works of black composers of the time. She revisits an era of great social change and also explores links with modern forms of dance music, including hip-hop and trap. By breathing new life into historical and often neglected musical forms, the show draws on both the past and the future.
