This lively area has become a centre of the London music scene, largely thanks to the Brixton Academy where major bands perform. In 1979, the Clash released Guns of Brixton, denouncing police brutality in this part of the city. April 1981 saw the outbreak of race riots. Since then, things have got calmer. The capital of London's Afro-Caribbean community, Brixton is known for is colourful market, offering produce from all around the world.
