Music & London Part 2

Here’s part 2 of our Music & London blog series, celebrating where Music and London meet in a selection of the best videos on the internet.  Here are today’s two offerings:

1) London in 1927

This incredible colour footage of 1920s London shot by an early British pioneer of film named Claude Frisse-Greene, who made a series of travelogues using the colour process his father William – a noted cinematographer – was experimenting with.

The film is set to two unbelievably beautiful pieces of music, made all the move moving by the accompanying cinematic, historic footage.

They are:

1 – “Parasol” by Jonquil

2 – Comptine d’un autre ete – yann tiersen

2)  Busker Jack Broadbent

Great footage of hip-flask-slide-guitar busker Jack Broadbent doing his thing on the streets of London.  His intense, deeply bluesy performances make his busking style one of the coolest, most Guitar-centric around.

Please share your own Music & London videos with us!
