It shouldn’t surprise you that Black rock is not just a cultural phenomenon that’s happening here in the States. There are scenes in Canada (Laina can tell you all about it) and South Africa. So if it’s happening in those countries, it’s probably happening in, say, London, right? Right!
Meet Mama Shamone, led by Ru Owen (2nd from the left). I got to know Ru after she interviewed me for a radio documentary that she produced on the Black rock scene in London. It was during the course of these conversations that she mentioned that she leads a band. I like the band’s upbeat, retro-electro sound, and I think you will, too.
