An unprecedented celebration of the African roots in music and culture, the acclaimed Back2Black festival travels from Rio de Janeiro to London, bringing a heady mix of funk, reggae, dub, hip hop, samba and blues.

Featuring three stages of live music and an eclectic line-up of more than 20 Brazilian, UK and international artists, including host Gilberto Gil, the London festival is held at Old Billingsgate Market in East London, transformed for the occasion by Brazilian visual artist and director Bia Lessa.

The festival will also include talks, debates, exhibitions, drumming displays and workshops involving young musicians from East London and the Pracatum School from Salvador de Bahia, Brazil.
