Journalist Lloyd Bradley's new book tells the story of a city's transformation through its music, taking in the wave of Commonwealth immigration in the 1940s right up to the present day.

After his exploration of calypso, author Lloyd Bradley turns his attention to another Caribbean import which has seeped into the soundtrack of London - steel pan.
