Jah Shaka Sound System


Roots rockinโ€™ reggae is the underlying ethos behind one of the most famous sounds in the history of the culture. Founded by accomplished producer Jah Shaka, also known as the Zulu Warrior, this sound has been up and running since the early 1970s. Itโ€™s certainly one of the unique ones, boasting a multicultural following, and has seen off a lot of competitors whilst clinging steadfast to its conscious staple. If you haven’t experienced Jah Shaka yourself, this clip from the 1981 movie Babylon should give you an idea of it’s power. While they haven’t played Notting Hill Carnival in ages, you can catch them at Saturday night’s Carnival Special event in Kentish Town.
