It never ceases to amaze me how all of these different art forms, and the spaces they inhabit become a safe haven for marginalised individuals, and also become a site for community love and compassion. The sound system movement, from it’s beginnings in Jamaica, to it’s adoption into the London culture is no exception, and long may it continue. Please don’t forget, the 13th and 14th of this month, this weekend Saturday and Sunday, there will be a series of events at goldsmiths university in London, Lewisham. Thali will be on a panel discussion at 16:15 to 17:30 all about women in the sound system movement.
