Voices of Black Opera: Documentary Screening & Online Operatic Performance

by You Press

Join us for a Screening of Voices of Black Opera which aims to address the misperception among the public about Black people and Opera. Cathy Hassan, Producer & Director will join Farah Mohammoud from You Press for a Q&A, followed by a special performance by British composer and musician Juwon Ogungbe.

Juwon Ogungbe: is an all-round musician – Singer, Composer, Instrumentalist and Educator. His singing career encompasses music from several cultures, including Classical and Contemporary Art Music, African Music genres, Jazz and Popular Music. In 2007 Juwon sang the songs of Ignatius Sancho – the first Black composer to have his music published for a BBC London/British Library concert. The recording of this performance is still available on the BBC website – the first ever recording of Sancho’s songs to be archived online.

Cathy Hassan is a London based photographer, filmmaker, producer and creative director with language degrees in French, Italian & Spanish. She graduated from the University of London and went on to study Photography and Film, uncovering a rich visual language that has become her trademark.
