Our annual collaboration with BBC Four this year celebrates Reggae and its impact on the UK’s music and culture. Music Director Dennis Bovell assembles a big band which includes some of the most important Reggae musicians in the British scene to back up a star cast of singers and toasters. Expect to hear hits from the 1960s to the present day as we tell the story of the musical evolution from Ska, through Rocksteady, Roots, Dub, Lovers Rock and beyond.
