We’re really excited for our tenth Artistic Directors Series, Dub Reactors: Reggae Roots Residency, to take place next month. We’ll be welcoming Manchester roots reggae and dub veterans P.Lush (Nucleus Roots, Dub Reaktion), T-Gad (T & Le Touch, Edward II) and a special guest vocalist to lead this three-day intensive residency at Band on the Wall. As we’ll be exploring the origins and roots or reggae music we put together this reggae roots Spotify playlist to get you in the mood.
