Last night we were bowled over when Femi Fem got in touch to inform us that Dennis Bovell, the legendary Reggae Songwriter, Musician and Producer would perform his hit song, ‘Silly Games’ written for Janet Kay at our Soulful Sunday Series on London’s Southbank during his set.
Dennis, is known for his immersion in Jamaican culture, particularly dub music, setting up his own Jah Sufferer sound system and being a key figure in the early days of the lovers rock genre. He has produced albums by a wide variety of artists including I-Roy, The Thompson Twins, Sharon Shannon, Alpha Blondy, Bananarama, The Pop Group, Fela Kuti, The Slits, Orange Juice and Madness.
He had the crowd in the palm of his hands. Thanks for coming Dennis!
The Soulful Sunday Series comes to an end next week, 23rd October 2016. We hope to see you for our grand finale!
