Four free conversations exploring the past, present and future of reggae in Britain
The influence of reggae on British music, culture and society is enormous – but its story has rarely been told. How did reggae emerge from the underground to reshape Black British culture? What role did it play in the creation of influential and inspirational new genres, from jungle to grime? And what might the future hold for the Black British music economy everyone working within it?
No Bass Like Home University is a virtual programme covering the past, present and future of reggae, and its musical and cultural influence on British society. Over four free discussions, taking place on Zoom at 7pm every Thursday in November, leading names in Black British music will be joining us to talk about everything from sound system culture to women in the music industry – and at every discussion, there’ll be a chance for you to put your questions directly to the panel.
Don’t miss what’s sure to be a fascinating and provocative series of conversations.
