Arnolfini and RWA invite you to join us for a special CULTURE CLASH celebration with 6Music DJ, film maker and Reggae / Punk impresario Don Letts.
Exploring the longstanding connections and crossovers between Reggae and Punk, we are celebrating the final day of Jamaican Pulse at RWA and Moving Targets at Arnolfini.
Widely acknowledged as the man who introduced reggae to the punk crowd in the 1970s while DJing at legendary venues such as The Roxy, Letts will be taking over the Arnolfini’s auditorium to bring us a set that, in the spirit of the original ‘punky-reggae party’ will be designed to get the crowd moving.
As well as continuing to DJ both nationally and internationally, Letts' credits include: co-founding the band Big Audio Dynamite with Mick Jones of The Clash; directing over 300 music videos for artists ranging from Public Image Limited to Bob Marley; and making documentary films on, among others, Gil Scot-Heron, The Jam and Paul McCartney. Published in 2007, his autobiography is entitled Culture Clash: Dread Meets Punk Rockers.
There will also be a screening of Don's film Carnival! at the RWA at 2pm.
