Accessible, fun, whistle-stop tour through the history of music – but one which makes some serious points about the importance of music in the fight for justice.
Dave Randall gives a multimedia presentation of his debut book: live guitar, recorded music plus video to include excerpts from Palestrina, Xenakis, Billie Holiday and Beyoncé.
‘A deeply intelligent look at music and society’ Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2 and 6 Music
