Subject: RE: Black music in Europe: A Hidden History
If we are talking musicians/composers who are black and at least referenced spirituals/african music etc then couldn't we look back to the end of the 1890s beginning of the 1900s with Samuel Coleridge-Taylor? He was at the time one of the most successful and well known English composers.
