Jah Shaka Sound System
Curated by The Bug
Music derived from Rastafarian sound system culture has known many incarnations over time, but Jah Shaka remains true to its spiritual roots and essence. He arrived as teenager from Jamaica in London in the late 50s when racism against black immigrants reached its zenith. Under the tutelage of Freddie Cloudburst, Jah Shaka became an essential figure within the British dancehall and dub scenes of the 70s. And to this day, this enigmatic Zulu Warrior (his real name is still a mystery) remains a vital and uncompromising artist, performer, activist and humanitarian.
