Reggae gets Mayors attention

Went to a discussion about Reggae at the Gramaphone Bar in London E1 last night. The event was organised by the Urban Enterprise Network and was entitled 'The History of Reggae and Sound System culture in the UK.' (click here for more info). The panel of experts comprised of David Rodigan, Jazzy B and Stuart Baker founder of Soul Jazz Records. There has been much discussion about this event over at the B&F message board but what I thought was the overwhelming point of the night was that all that encompasses "reggae" in the UK needs to unite. Maybe under a banner organisation so that collectively it can be nurtured, grown and archived for the enjoyment of current and future generations. Some pics from the night can be viewed by clicking the title post or link below.
