Events to celebrate Coventry’s ‘Sound System’ culture

Events to celebrate Coventry's 'Sound System' culture

THE ‘SOUND System’ culture which came to Coventry more than 50 years ago will be celebrated through three events with the first one this Saturday, October 2.

The Coventry City of Culture Trust is placing a spotlight on ‘Dub and Roots’ and ‘Dancehall’, toasting the sounds of the city and the Caribbean.

It will highlight how 1950s West Indian arrivals to the city – many from Coventry’s twin city of Kingston – built their own sound systems with huge speakers and amps, introducing new Reggae and Ska music to local audiences at parties.
