Raindance Sonic

Raindance Sonic is the newly relaunched Music strand at Raindance Film Festival featuring documentary film and live events, curated by Tayba Mason. 

Raindance Film Festival has previously screened some of the best independent music documentaries and events and has hosted such musicians as Lou Reed, Mick Jones and Marky Ramone.

Listen out for our monthly playlist on Spotify, on the first Friday of every month. This month’s theme is The Spirit of Memphis.

Playlist 3 -The Spirit of Memphis

Featuring artists from Take me To the River (Martin Shore, 2014) including music by William Bell, Booker T and the M.G’s, Bobby Bland, Al Green and many more  Memphis Superstars. This is just a little history, a snapshot of some of the incredible life changing, heart breaking,  soul stomping and revolutionary recordings made in Memphis between the 1920’s and 1970’s. It provides just a little back story to some of the more famous global hits this town produced and delves a little deeper than the average playlist. Because Memphis and Average don’t go together!
