Exhibition 1: 25 - 30 October 2022
Curated by CeeBee Multimedia (Chaaawaaa Radio) aka Colin Brown (Reggae Fraternity UK) in partnership with BBMC, this exhibition is the first ever to focus on the foundation years of the genre. Artists and bands who have so often been overlooked are highlighted and the most successful artists of the period like Janet Kay (Silly Games) are celebrated.
A serious attempt is made to establish the chronology of when UK based reggae artists and bands released their first Lovers Rock song. The exhibition charts the evolution from a Jamaican sound to a distinctively British sound, from Romantic Reggae to UK Lovers Rock.
