To coincide with the exhibition Rebel Sounds, part of the Culture Under Attack season at IWM London, Imperial War Museums presents Rebel Sounds Live, a free series of live interventions and discussions with musicians and activists who have risked their lives for culture in times of war, exile and censorship.
Rebel Sounds Live Belgrade: Techno Music and Grassroots Resistance
London-based journalist, broadcaster and DJ Kate Hutchinson will lead a panel of music-activists in a discussion about the rave scene in 90s Belgrade.
Rebel Sounds Live Mali: Defiant Music and Songhoy Blues
Exiled Desert Blues stars Songhoy Blues perform their music of resistance and discuss rebellion and the banning of music in Mali.
Rebel Sounds Live is part of Culture Under Attack, a free season of three exhibitions, live music, performances and talks at IWM London that explore how war threatens not just people’s lives, but also the things that help define us. Telling stories spanning 100 years, Culture Under Attack reveals why some try to erase or exploit culture, while others risk everything to protect, celebrate and rebuild it.
