No Bass Like Home Reggae Map
Part of No Bass Like Home, the Reggae Map captures iconic people and places which have shaped the borough's reggae history. Suggestions for pins were made by local people and the map also draws on Kwaku's 'Brent Black Music History Project' (2007).
Looking at themes of pioneering artists, fandom, women in reggae and sound system culture, the digital archive brings this to life through people’s memories and personal thoughts about Brent's contribution to reggae, its impact and legacy.
