Title:
1968: When Reggae Hit the Town
When:
Thu 07/18  7:00pm
Where:
Missouri History Museum - St. Louis
Categories:
Lecture/Discussion , Reggae , KDHX Events

Description

Explore a year of epic change in Jamaican music & culture as KDHX reggae DJs Ital K ("Ital Rhythms") and Michael Kuelker ("Positive Vibrations") deliver a lively lecture with music.

The focus is 1968, when the culture in Jamaica was brimming with change, when rocksteady was giving way to new sounds -- when Jamaica and soon the rest of the world began, as Toots sang, to "do the reggae." It was a time for the rise of the ghetto producers (e.g. Bunny Lee, Lee Perry) and a spectacular flowering of music from Studio One, Treasure Isle and other hothouses of creativity in JA.
