L3 Popular music : article on Notting Hill in French

We will soon be moving onto popular music. We will be analysing popular music not just as a series of (perhaps poetic) lyrics and a series of (corresponding) notes riffs and feedback, but as a set of mass activities which play particular and changing roles in people's social, emotional and spiritual lives.

You will be being encouraged to take a wide view of popular music inside the history of society.

This article in French looks at music coming from immigrants to the UK, and some of the social and political meanings it has taken on. Do read it.
