Decolonising the Music Curriculum #1

Sony have re-released the Black Composer Series led by conductor Paul Freeman and the LSO. Thanks to Dr. Chris Dingle for sharing. Have really enjoyed listening, wish I could buy all the vinyl copies.

I’m currently listening to some contemporary composers Roque Cordero and George Walker. They are both completely new to me.

Roque Cordero according to wikipedia was (August 16, 1917 – December 27, 2008) and a Panamanian composer. George Theophilus Walker (June 27, 1922 – August 23, 2018) was the first African American to have won the Pulitzer Prize for Music.
