Culture, Appropriation, Authorship And Copyright: The Story Of ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight’

March 7, 2016 @ 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM

| Free
UNiOfWestminsterLionSleeps

A University Of Westminster Law School &  British Black Music/Black Music Congress (BBMBMC) session consisting of the exclusive screening of award-winning filmmaker François Verster’s ‘A Lion’s Trail’, which reveals how Zulu musician Solomon Linda hardly received any money for his song ‘Mbube’, which went on to become a pop classic, which topped the charts, generated hundreds of covers, and features in Disney’s ‘The Lion King’ film and stage musical. It naturally generated millions of dollars for Western companies and writers.

A post-screening discussion will centre around the moral aspects, music industry practice, contracts, authorship, appropriation and the “game” of copyright.

Please register your place on Eventbrite.
