D.C.'s R&B music legends celebrated in new Govinda Gallery exhibit
“Washington has an extraordinary legacy, a music legacy that we’re honoring here today with Fernando Sandoval’s photographs,” he said.
Sandoval is the photographer whose photos are on display at the gallery. He has been taking photos and developing relationships with R&B musicians like Black Magic and Mr. Lee.
"I guess unconsciously I was collecting this work to bring it finally to a gallery like this so they could get the recognition they deserve and are looking for," Sandoval said.
One of the most notable D.C. artists featured in the exhibit is Chuck Brown, who created go-go music, a form of African American music that features jazz, R&B and hip-hop music as well as percussion, VOANews.com reports.
