From as early as 1873 Black musicians have been influencing the cultural scene in Hackney. By the 1970s the borough was leading the way in genres such as rocksteady and reggae and producing its own internationally renowned stars. A new exhibition opening at Hackney Museum next month explores this and the important history and legacy of African and Caribbean music in the borough.
