Rhythms of Windrush

The Windrush generation brought many things with them to the British Isles when they arrived during the mid 20th century, their most prominent and treasured import being music!

Rhythms of Windrush champions the sounds of Ska, Reggae, 2step and Calypso, by fostering an environment where participants were given the tools and encouragement to construct music influenced by the sounds and rhythms of the Windrush generation. This culminated in a performance, with the participants getting to play alongside Contrast Steel Band, the Mixtones and Leicester Community Radio’s Dirksman.
