Amy Winehouse has described her musical evolution as moving from jazz, to soul, through to gospel, then motown and finally hip-hop. As part of the Jewish Museum's 'Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait' exhibition, the Jewish Museum of Australia presents a series of evenings that traverse Amy’s vast musical journey, digging a little deeper into the styles of music that informed her complex writing, composition, melody and voice.Amy’s first foray into hip-hop was as a teenager when she was inspired by her love of Salt-N-Pepa – with her friend, Juliette, they formed their own rap group called ‘Sweet’n’Sour’ (Amy was Sour). Later, embarking on a love affair with R&B and hip-hop, Winehouse shifted her love of hip-hop music into the worlds of Missy Elliot, Nas, Faith Evans, Brandy and Monica. Melbourne based DJ, curator and radio presenter, DJ MzRizk will curate a night of hip-hop tunes by some of Amy’s favourites, as well as some of the fresh hip-hop coming out of the local music scene.Thursday Nights are brought to you by Jewish Museum of Australia and Hear Them Holler.
