Visit "Paris-London, Music Migrations" at the Palais de la Porte Dorée.

From 1962 to 1989 , many musical trends linked to migration flows transformed Paris and London into multicultural capitals. Visit this exhibition until 5 January 2020.

"Paris-London. Music Migrations" offers an immersive and chronological journey through these two decisive decades  in the musical history of Paris and London.


A true musical and visual experience, Paris-London, Music Migrations showcases more than 600 documents and works of art linked to music – instruments, costumes, photos, concert posters, videos, record sleeves, fanzines... - loans from institutions such as the Victoria and Albert Museum, but also objects from musicians’ personal collections – including Manu Dibango's –, a costume by Fela Kuti, the “father” of afro-beat, or creations by Jean Paul Gaultier.

The journey entails a rich series of photographers such as James Barnor, Charlie Phillips, Pierre Terrasson, Philippe Chancel, Syd Shelton, and the works of contemporary artists such as Saâdane Afif, Paul Villinski, Isaac Julien, Rose Eken.
