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


No. But what was he playing? We have very little idea of what anyone was playing in that era. But I would think it quite likely that black musicians employed in Elizabethan households to play music might well have been playing music learned in their homelands. Many of these people were freed slaves from captured Spanish ships.
