D Lime feat. Tobago Crusoe & Panel Discussion
June 14, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Acclaimed Calypsonians Tobago and d’Lime will perform and discuss the history of calypso music, Windrush and Caribbean culture in the UK with a panel of experts.
Coming in the wake of the recent scandal uncovering the shocking mistreatment of the Windrush generation at the hands of the Home Office, this event provides an opportunity to celebrate the multifaceted contributions made by Caribbean migrants to Britain. At the end of the concert we will be collecting donations for the Windrush Justice Fund to support those so let down by the British government.
The World’s Music at Oxford is a project run at the University of Oxford, which blends research into global musics with live performance. Our concerts are open to all students of the University and members of the general public, and are all free of charge.
The project, created in 2016, is run by postgraduate students researching a wide range of global musics. It aims to provide a platform for voices and musical styles rarely heard in Oxford and to build new links between the University and the general public.
Our events showcase renowned performers from the UK and abroad. During the performances, the musicians also explain the characteristics and contexts of the works they perform.
