Music is powerful. Music is life. Music can carry the stories of history like a message in a bottle.
To celebrate Father's Day and the publication of Jeffrey Boakye's Musical Truth: A Musical History of Modern Black Britain in 28 Songs, we have a very exciting competition for both Dad and the kids.
We're giving one lucky winner the chance to win a signed copy of the book, a £50 Record Token for Dad to spend on new music of his choice, and a Casio beginners keyboard set for budding young musicians!
10 runners-up will also receive a signed copy of Musical Truth: A Musical History of Modern Black Britain in 28 Songs and a £10 Record Token.
A history book with a twist, Musical Truth is an extraordinary retelling of Black British history through the lens of modern music. Structured around a playlist of twenty-eight songs, each acts as a jumping off point for deeper social, political and historical analysis, tracking key moments in the Black British narrative. Inviting young readers to immerse themselves in the music of artists such as Musical Youth, Craig David, Ms Dynamite, Stormzy Dave and many more, Musical Truth is a powerful, groundbreaking and unique celebration of Black British culture.
From Father's Day to birthdays, Record Tokens are a special treat for life-long music lovers as well as a wonderful gift for those yet to experience buying their first vinyl record. To find out more about Record Tokens, and the chance to win £100 every month, visit recordtokens.co.uk.
