About the Wu-Tang: Will Ashon Discusses Chamber Music

Monday 12th November 18:00 at Manchester - Deansgate

Twenty-five years ago an album was released that changed the world. The complexity, range, humour, musicality, power and reach of Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) electrified music fans everywhere.

In his dazzling new book, Chamber Music, Will Ashon tells, in 36 chambers (or chapters), how this extraordinary album came to be. From the history of jazz to social housing, from fashion to politics, from crack to the FBI, from Hong Kong martial arts movies to racism, race and a confused USA, Chamber Music is the explosive and revelatory story of our world in 1993 and today.

Chamber Music ranges from provocative essays to semi-comic skits, from deep scholarly analysis to satirical celebration, seeking to contextualise, reveal and honour the singularly composite work of art.

Join us for an exclusive discussion on the book, followed by a Q&A.
