 Sound System Stories: Wheel And Come Again!  photo

Sound Systems are the beating heart of the Black community - the DJ as the griot selecting the soundtrack to our lives, with a thumping baseline against a syncopated rhythm, that helped define a generation and create a heritage that has impacted many on a global scale. Gladdy Wax sound system has always been at the centre of this genre and continues to ignite a passion in all of us by remaining relevant to this day. We come together at the V&A for this pre-Carnival weekend event to celebrate this musical giant by recording and archiving his story of UK Sound System Culture.

Celebrates the 75th Anniversary of the 7-inch single.

Speakers to be announced.
