We are excited to reveal that we’re collaborating with local soul & funk night Neighbourhd to present a closing event for the final weeks of The Influence Project. Held in the gallery space, the music will take inspiration from the sound of the trailblazing musicians whose photographs surround them.
Neighbourhd’s vision is to bring working and budding musicians in the city of Birmingham together and empower them to own this movement. We want to create an environment in which progressive and soulful Brummy music can develop, a diverse community and organic network can grow and a generous, collaborative culture can be nurtured. Practically speaking, our events are pre-organised Jam Nights encouraging original and fresh new ideas to be played in a live context.
So you can audibly visualise the sound for the night; we love artists like J Dilla, Chance the Rapper, Robert Glasper, Outkast, Janelle Monáe, Anderson Paak., N*E*R*D, The Roots, Hiatus Kaiyote, Tom Misch and Frank Ocean.
