Additional Information

Item details
The Soul of a Nation: Afro-Centric Visions in the Age of Black Power album has been released by Soul Jazz Records to coincide with our Soul of a Nation exhibition at Tate Modern.

Featuring groundbreaking artists such as Gil Scott- Heron, Roy Ayers, Don Cherry, Oneness of Juju, Sarah Webster Fabio, Horace Tapscott and Phil Ranelin, the CD also comes with extensive sleeve- notes and exclusive photography.

Just as the exhibition surveys a crucial period in American art history, when African American artists responded to the political climate with complex, innovative art reflecting their experience, the Soul of a Nation album shows how political themes led to the rise of ‘conscious’ black music.

Focusing on the period between 1968-75 when ‘conscious’ jazz musicians created music combining new political and musical qualities, the album shows how the ideals of the civil rights movement, black power and black nationalism influenced the evolution of radical African-American music in the USA.

Featured as Lauren Laverne's Compilation of the week on BBC 6 Music.

1. Gil Scott-Heron - The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

2. Mandingo Griot Society with Don Cherry - Sounds from the Bush
