Dave Randall: The Political Power of Music
Fri 28th April 2017
4.00pm - 5.00pm
From underground grime artists to pop icons, punk to the Arab Spring, many believe in the political power of music. Rulers recognise it too. Music has been used to unsettle the most fundamental political and social conventions and to prop up the status quo.
This experienced musician and fomer Faithless Guitarist cites remarkable examples of music as a force for social change or social control and explains what makes music so powerful and how we can make music serve the interests of everyone.
Dave Randall is a musician and activist, and has played with a wide variety of artists including Sinead O'Connor and Dido.
