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:

That Time in Foreign: A Conversation with Dr. Hilary Robertson Hickling

In the early 2000’s, Cecil Gutzmore in the Institute of Culture Studies hosted a series titled ‘Dat Time in Farin,’ which featured seventeen (17) autobiographical presentations exploring the experiences of Caribbean nationals in the United Kingdom. Many of the presenters were known personally to Mr. Gutzmore, a Jamaican-born Pan Africanist who lived in the UK, returned to Jamaica and maintains strong connections to the island.

Virtual Tour of the Exhibition ‘The Enigma of Arrival’

In February 2020, we opened the exhibition ‘The Enigma of Arrival: The Politics and Poetics of Caribbean Migration to Britain”. However, due to COVID-19 public health prevention measures, the museum was forced to discontinue in-person visits. The exhibition will be pulled down in December to make way for January programming but not to worry, we have created the Enigma of Arrival Virtual Series just to suit you.
