1ES 1 April 7th, 2015

Ska is a combination of Carribean music and American Rhythm and Blues. It predated reggae, it comes from Jamaica.

British teenagers from the Carribean communities and also white teenagers enjoyed Ska because it spoke about revbellion and freedom.

The aim / goal of ska, reggae and soul music is to express freedom from slavery so the songs have a political dimension.

They celebrate Black roots and cheer people up, they are about having a good time. These styles appealed (plaisaient / attiraient) all the working class kids (les enfants de la classe ouvrière)  like Don Letts or Eric Burdon regardless (sans tenir compte de) of their skin colour.

These styles emerged in the 1950s and evolved in the 1960s.

Reggea bands from Jamaica include Prince Buster, British soul singers include Amy Winehouse, famous Ska bands include the Skatellites, The Wailers and the Specials, the Clash mixed rock n’ roll, punk and ska in the late 1970s.

1S

Team 1- What is soul? What’s a ‘classic sould voice’?

Culture / attitude

music genre / that moves you / dates back to 50s in Britain

origins of soul :

_ Gospel / Jazz from America & slave songs

_ Carribean influence from Barbados & Jamaica

not for or by only Black people > also for and by white people

penetrates your soul (âme)

powerful music

Team 2- 2 white British singers react to soul.

Give their opinion / maybe inspired by soul music

Team 3- Carribean immigrants and social changes.

  • Brought new styles./ came from West Indies / Carribean Islands

beautiful black voices and experimentations

  • new British citizens and they played music very loud in their home at night

neighbours complained about the noise / they called the police

  • attracted hate and violence « Blacks go Home »

  • Tensed situation in London, Notting Hill > Notting Hill carnival / 1958 violent riots happened

no dance halls / equipment taken by police / police raids & petrol bombs > race riots in 1960s

  • Opposed to / Whereas in Newcastle > peaceful /

common issues of low salaries & poor conditions.

Team 4- White teenagers and race riots.

In 1958 there were riots at 10 pm in London, in Notting Hill. 5 000 white rioters wanted to kill Black people / West Indian / Caribbean people.

They shouted « Go back to your country ! » and they threw petrol bombs so the houses were on fire.

Carribean house parties with loud music were blamed for the noise.

Team 5- My grand father was a slave.

E. Brudon’s grand father was considered as a slave because he worked in a coal mine and in coal mines miners are covered

in suit / black and when he went to the pub and drank beer his lips were clean so he looked like Black people. (to be drunk : être bourré)

He listened to Gospel music in churches because in Newcastle there were Black churches.

Gospel music is at the orgin of soul music. The British working class had the same issues as Black minorities so in Newcastle there aren’t any tensions at the beginning.

Reading Comprehension – A Black teenager in an alien culture

Don Letts was second generation Jamaican teenager / his brother came from Jamaica after his parents and

his parents were first generation immigrants. ‘not really working out’ ‘ tried to be anglicised’ > parents’ integration was difficult and not successful. Don Letts suffered from racism / he felt ‘alien’ / like a foreigner .

Derrick wanted to be part of British society but he rebelled and had a ‘rude’ lifestyle.

Don and Derrick got on well, Derrick showed Don the ‘delights of life’ / how to have a good time / musical and style / attitude reference for his younger brother. Don & Derrick vs their parents > opposition / confrontation / contrast / gap (fossé)

Derrich was proud of his Jamaicans roots (racines)/ he showed off (crânait) whereas his parents were quiet and tried to look like English / they didn’t fit in. (faisaient tjrs tache)
