Caribbean Musicians and their Contribution to Britain

This week in the Enigma of Arrival series we explore the impact of Caribbean musicians in the UK. On loan from the Jamaica Music Museum (JaMM) are five vinyls that feature key Caribbean artists such as Millie Small, Shake Keane, Joe Harriot, Jimmy James and Tan Tan. Director/Curator of JaMM Mr Herbie Miller reflects on the role of the Windrush Generation of musicians contribution to the international music scene and how their sacrifices have made way for later generations of black and other British musicians today.

Watch our conversation with Mr. Miller below:
