Since 1986 Liz Johnson Artur has been creating photographic representations of people of African descent around the world. The name of her Black Balloon Archive project, featured at CAM, derives from a 1969 song by the American soul singer Syl Johnson, and the name of her exhibition, Dusha, is Russian for “soul.” With DJ Reminise, CAM DJ-in-Residence James Biko traces the history of soul music and contemporary sampling in this interactive spinning session.
