R&B in London
R&B, or rhythm and blues, originated in 1940s America, pioneered by the likes of Chuck Berry and B.B. King.
Nowadays, the sound has very much moved on from what it was like then, but R&B remains one of the most popular genres around.
In London, you can find R&B everywhere, from gigs, to club nights to soundtracks in bars. Many of London’s top music venues also host world-class R&B artists, including Rihanna, Naughty Boy and Pitbull.
