Cafe Culturel, Leicester: Sundae Bloody Sundae – 7 August 2007, 6.30pm

facebook group:


Music is an art form that touches everyone in the world. We use it to map our lives. It stirs passions responsible for bringing people together or keeping them apart. But what are the properties of music that make it so important to us? Is it even the music itself that most of us care about or is it just a social tool to give us a common reference point?

U2, Sting, Phil Collins… James ?Effing? Blunt?

At some point we make a decision to stop listening to just anything and start making choices. But how are our tastes shaped? How influential are those around us, the media, and the big labels in defining which music we love and which we hate? What makes certain musicians so universally praised and others so despised?

As a prelude to Leicester’s premier music festival, the Summer Sundae Weekender, Cafe Culturel will take a look at what makes a good song so very, very good and a bad one so awful.
