The plainsightSOUND database

The database is a music list of over 400 (and growing) pieces of music written and recorded by composers and performers of Black African descent who were active before 1970. The focus is on music written in European classical/art music styles and related or hybrid genres. If you know any composers or pieces that are missing from this lists and would like to help complete the project, suggestions can be submitted for consideration here.

PlainsightSOUND is a work in progress and this means that some categories might still be missing information. A search function has been included but search results e.g. for specific instruments or groupings might be incomplete at this stage. Where known, abbreviated instrumentation has been used. For now, sorting via composer name or medium will give you more complete results.

If you have found the database useful, please share and consider making a donation to help with the upkeep of the site and continuing research. Even if you aren’t able to contribute, it would still be nice to hear how this has been helpful to you!
