Genre-defying music from the African diaspora

Learning from the past and looking towards the future, the 2000BLACK collective, named after a 1975 Roy Ayers’ recording, was established in 1998 by Dego.

Inspired by its lyrics ‘Think about the future, think about change’, the 2000 BLACK label and band formed an innovative platform, producing and performing any genre of music rooted in funk, soul, jazz, hip hop and pushing its boundaries to form contemporary innovations.
