SAT 12 Oct
Sound System Panel Discussion 5pm – 7pm
Music and digital art projections by Wassifa Sound System 7pm – 10pm
From the limited technology and hand-built sound boxes of the 1970s to entertaining massive crowds today, Wassifa has been instrumental in the development and rise of reggae music in the city of Birmingham and throughout the UK. Brought to the UK by migration from Jamaica, reggae music and the sound system transcended racial and cultural barriers and have had a widespread influence on British culture at large and especially the emergence of African Caribbean youth culture in the UK.
