David Carter (UK) Black music in Europe: A Hidden History (27) RE: Black music in Europe: A Hidden History 04 Apr 19

According to this link: the black trumpeter John Blanke played at the courts of Henry VII and Henry VIII. And black people were employed in Tudor times in households in a variety of roles, including as musicians. It is not hard to imagine that this would have been even more common in Spain and Portugal. Black music in Europe is not a 20th century thing.
