A family-friendly event consisting of the first screening of ‘Britain’s Contribution To The Development Of Reggae’, a guerilla documentary started by Kwaku in 2012 to mark JA@50 with contributions from numerous artists, producers, activists, fans, etc; and Gus Berger’s ‘Duke Vin And The Birth Of Ska’, which aims to tell the story of what happened when Duke Vin and Count Suckle arrived in the UK in 1954 and Duke Vin soon setting up the first sound system in the UK. They brought with them a sound that was sweeping across Jamaica and would later change the face of music in the UK. This was the sound of Ska!
Followed by a Q&A, quiz and a selection of purely British reggae with Kwaku and Da Prezedent!
