Sound System Culture Exhibition Comes To London

Soundsystems originated in Kingston, but no other city has proved so influential in shaping their future development as London.

An exhibition dedicated to London's rich history of reggae soundsytems is coming to Notting Hill (where else?) as part of a national tour to document and celebrate the history of soundsystem culture across the UK (previously showing in Bristol and Birmingham).

The exhibition - comprised of photographs, archive film footage and other memorabilia- offers visitors a chance to interact with a vintage style system custom built for the project.

Taking place from the 5th-17th of January, the project culminates in live event ska2ROOTS on Saturday 30th January, featuring legendary soundsystem Sir Coxsone Outernational and a guest appearance from renknowned reggae musician and producer Dennis Bovell.


Sound System Culture takes place at The Tabernacle, Notting Hill from 5-17 January 2016 - Facebook event
