As a musician I have long had a love for music: especially Reggae and Ska. When I heard about the Dubplate to Dubstep project I jumped at the chance to learn more about the history and culture responsible for these sounds. Two things that really stood out were presenting our first live radio show on Ujima and watching our finished films on the big screen. A part of the project that really interested me was the knowledge shared by Dr Edson Burton: our resident historian. He helped us learn more about the historical background of the Caribbean and I think this helped contextualise our interviews.
Since taking part in Dubplate to Dupstep I present a weekly radio show on Ujima, as well as filming a variety of video projects. The team have helped me develop my love of media and supported us all to realise our potential – all through the power of reggae… Cheers guys!
