About the event
The story of Reggae Sound System culture - the beating heart of Caribbean-rooted music. Distant Drums is a dynamic and thought-provoking performance that tells the story of Reggae Sound System culture and its role in the fight for racial equality. A handcrafted bespoke sound system stands proudly on a statue plinth. As the speakers power up, digital screens appear within the stack and through animated films transport the audience from Africa to the Caribbean and finally to the shores of the UK.
Written by Madu Messenger, narrated by Macka B, choreographed by Donald Edwards with a distinctive Dub soundtrack by Vibronics, Distant Drums promises to be an exhilarating performance not to be missed.
This programme is being presented as part of Black History Month and is also included in the Redbridge Outdoor Arts programme.
