Location: Boxpark Wembley
We're linking up with BrukOut to celebrate Black History Month with the first instalment of Remember The Times!
The 70’s and 80’s were pivotal times for the global reggae scene, and the UK definitely played its part. As well as carving out an industry here at home, the music resonated throughout the reggae world. From the Ambitious and talented sound systems such as Saxon who spawned the likes of Tippa Irie and Maxi Priest, to the hard roots production and lyrics of Aswad and Steel Pulse as well as the chart topping exploits of Janet Kay. Amongst it all was birth and development of one of the genres leading styles - Lovers Rock. Uniquely British, the Lovers Rock sound embodied the time.
Broadcaster and journalist Seani B looks at a special period in Black British Music history, and explores how it all came about and the generational impact of it all.
