A unique project mapping Brixton’s rich music, history and culture.
The vibrant south London neighbourhood of Brixton is brimming with history. In our latest project, we are working to create an interactive music map that will chart the inspiring stories of Brixton’s Black community as told by local people themselves.
SONGSTREETS is led by Jessie Lloyd, an award-winning Indigenous Australian musician, who revived the music of Indigenous Elders in Australia. As with Jessie’s MISSION SONGS PROJECT, in Brixton she has embarked on a musical journey with the local community, to reveal the forgotten stories and unexplored corners of recent history.
The project will culminate in the release of an interactive music app, created by award winning transformative public arts company Aswarm.
Jessie Lloyd is an Australian Aboriginal singer, social historian and cultural practitioner of Indigenous song, who takes audiences on a profoundly-moving musical journey into the depth and diversity of cultural identity.
Aswarm transforms places to enable the people that use them to play, contemplate and re-evaluate their agency within them. They see their audiences as the active agents that bring the work to life. Aswarm is directed by artist Thor McIntyre-Burnie.
Part of the UK/Australia Season 2021-22.
Interactive music app, created by Aswarm, led by Artist Thor McIntyre-Burnie.
