Black Rhino Music continues the conference series dedicated to music and communities with special guests such as Mikey Dread and Ras Kayleb from Channel One Sound System.

For the second conference we push forward the discussion and bring in the perspective of two men who shaped an entire music scene and put their fingerprint on the evolution of sound system culture in London and United Kingdom. Discussion will front questions and answers about their first steps in creating a community around reggae music and how the scene developed under years. We will also target aspects such as their 30 years of presence in Notting Hill Carnival, Europe’s biggest street festival.

Channel One’s mission is to break down barriers via reggae music, they have achieved this by playing new venues, new festivals and different countries, taking their unique sound to Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Turkey and all over Europe.

By talking with Mikey Dread and Ras Kayleb we want to share with the public the drive behind the sound system culture and the philosophy that gathered such a strong and dynamic community around this culture.

The conference will be open to questions from the public all through the discussion.

To enter the conference please send us an email with your full name at info@blackrhinomusic.ro (only one person per email can be registered).
