In the Evening There is Feeling: Listening to Studio One Soul
Led by DCA’s Exhibitions team, _In the Evening There is Feeling_ is (usually) DCA’s reading group. It takes its name from Gertrude Stein’s 1914 book _Tender Buttons_ and (usually) focuses, in an informal and welcoming way, on feminist and queer texts from the worlds of art and literature.
For our Spring season as part of Zineb Sedira’s exhibition in the galleries, instead of just thinking about writers and poets, we will be also considering musicians who have been influential to the artist. We will be listening instead of reading.
This session will focus on the 2001 fusion album, _Studio One Soul _which explores the indisputable link between Jamaican reggae and American soul music. Featuring one of Sedira’s favourite songs _Express Yourself_ sung by Leroy Sibbles, this thoughtful collection of covers adds new depth and texture to longstanding soul classics reinforcing the legacy of Black American music.
Over the course of this event, we will spend some time listening closely together to excerpts from this album, discussing the narrative power of covers and the feeling of soul music. You can listen to the full album on YouTube here [https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLpsKSm8F34qMr6BIVVkv-JJds_VZJGPgp] and stream it on many other online platforms.
