Juneteenth Unityfest Performer Eric Burton of Black Pumas Talks The Legacy of Soul Music

Over the last few years Austin, Texas has been overflowing with powerful music and live shows. At the crest of this new wave in creativity, stand Black Pumas, featuring frontman Eric Burton and guitarist Adiran Quesada. The Grammy-nominated group’s music jumps out at us. 

Here, EBONY chops it up with Burton about the legacy of Black soul music in its modern refresh, and the group’s amazing cover of Tracy Chapman’s iconic Fast Car. Check them out at Ebony.com as one of the headliners of Juneteenth Unityfest.
