Paris-London, Music Migrations (1962-1989)

What do reggae-punk, ska and Asian underground have in common?

Except for the fact that they’re all styles of music, each of them is the result of a mixing of cultures.

With the exhibition Paris-London, Music Migrations (1962-1989), the Musée National de l’Histoire de l’Immigration recounts a pivotal period in music in the two capitals from the 60s to the late 80s thanks to immigration.

The exhibition describes the common history between Paris and London, two major European capitals. Both cities were the centres of their respective colonial empires until the end of the 20th century, the resulting immigration led to a melting pot of Asian, African and European cultures.

Focusing on the intersection of music, political movements and battles for racial equality, this exhibition shows how different communities have used music to fight for equal rights, contribute to their countries’ respective artistic scenes and exist visibly in society.

Over 600 documents and artworks are on display, including photographs, paintings, concert posters and record sleeves, and an extensive playlist accompanies you throughout the exhibition, featuring dozens of artists such as Neneh Cherry, Asian Dub Foundation, Desmond Dekker, Les Négresses Vertes and Alpha Blondy.
