Scalarama Leeds Programme launch at the Brudenell Social Club
The first screening in Leeds of a brand new doumentary that traces the history of the world’s most iconic ska, reggae and rock-steady record label, Trojan Records.
Trojan Records started in Jamaica in 1968 with Duke Reid’s Trojan Sound System.
Rudeboy: The Story Of Trojan Records explains how music and immigration made connections between between Jamaican and British working-class youth cultures in the 1960s and 70s, starting a cultural revolution that unfolded in the council estates and shanty towns.
