The City Talking: Music in Leeds Vol 3

The City Talking: Music in Leeds Vol 3


The third instalment of The City Talking X BBC film series, Music in Leeds will premiere at Leeds International Festival, telling stories from the city’s extensive — and often untold — music history.

While no documentary can tell every story of a city’s sound, the stories in this volume will contribute to the larger narrative of community, experimentation, DIY philosophies and independent ethics; themes that were explored in Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 that are integral to the music Leeds has made and shared with the world.

The City Talking: Music in Leeds, Vol. 3 features appearances from members of the band Chumbawamba, Marc Almond, Daniel Miller from Mute Records, Scritti Politti’s Tom Morley, DJ’s Gip Dammone and Lubi Jovanovic from the DIG Family and more.

The film is produced in partnership with the BBC, and supported by LeedsBID.
