The Black Peril by Soweto Kinch
Feat. Makaya McCraven, Junius Paul and Members of the London Symphony Orchestra

One year on from The Armistice declaration in 1918, episodes of civil unrest erupted across the western world. What should have been a moment of triumph and social cohesion, disintegrated into violent disorder and racial conflict. From Liverpool, Glasgow, Cardiff and South Shields and the ‘Red-Summer’ across the US, city streets were set ablaze by race riots. 
 
The Black Peril is a dynamic new work by Soweto Kinch, inspired by the sounds of ragtime, proto-jazz, West Indian folk music and the classical works of black composers of the period. It will revisit a time of momentous social change, also exploring connecting strands to modern forms of dance music including hip hop and trap. 
 
Breathing new life into historic and often neglected musical forms, the performance will feature a 14-piece jazz ensemble with some of the most skilled performers of the UK jazz scene, a quartet by the members of London Symphony Orchestra, Chicago jazz giants Makaya McCraven and Junius Paul as well as dance choreographed by rising star Jade Hackett, and visuals of news footage and film archive from 1919. It's a powerful artistic reflection on this 100-year history of racial conflict - exploring cultural anxieties, which in many ways are just as prescient in today's world. 
 
The premiere of this new work is co-commissioned by Serious, London Symphony Orchestra and University of Hull, and supported as a part of Help Musicians UK’s Giant Steps scheme and Cockayne Grant for the Arts.
