Ambiences in Black: An Excursion into Black music on the Ethereal Edge

Ambiences in Black

Today, the first day of Black History Month, we’re exploring the black influences on the Echoes soundscape because black and white is not a cultural divide I want to promote anywhere, let alone music. But with all the Germans, Scandinavians, British and white Americans you hear on the show you might not see or hear the rich traditions of Black art not just underlying much of the music but often very much in the clear. You may not realize that in an echoes mix, but today they are all out front. on Ambiences in Black, when we turn the Echoes prism onto the African and black influences in ambient music. Black History Month has never sounded like this!
