The Peace and Love Concert II

Music lovers turned up at South Street Arts Centre for a celebration evening of Caribbean music hosted by CultureMix Arts.

The Black History Month event kicked off with an eclectic mix of Latin and Caribbean music from DJ Louie followed by a live set from Reading's favourite steel band.

RASPO rolled out a twenty-two piece orchestra to premiere a brand new repertoire of popular songs dynamically refashioned by the arrangers and artistic team at CultureMix. The set showcased the versatility and vibrancy of the steel pan instrument.


RASPO perform 'Showtime' at the 2nd Peace and Love Concert.

Next up were roots reggae sound system Jah Lion Movement who got the crowd bobbing and bubbling ready for a second half of live dub reggae courtesy of The Mighty Dub Generators.
