WORD SOUND & POWER joins forces with PAINTED PRINTED PLAYED and it is on at Rich Mix in Shoreditch for the duration of the London jazz Festival
In the summer of 2012 – to celebrate 50 years of Jamaican Independence – we premiered WORD SOUND & POWER: Reggae Change My Life at the British Music Experience in the 02. Supported by the Arts Council Of England the exhibition delivered a visual journey that traces the evolution and impact of Jamaican music…ska, rock steady, reggae, dub… in the UK.
At PAINTED PRINTED PLAYED – which has been curated by celebrated painter Gina Southgate – we have extracted a few pieces from Word Sound & Power that pay homage to the Sound Systems that traveled the length and breadth of the nation bringing the latest music & news to the Afro Caribbean communities.
Respect is still due!
