Scalarama festival launch: Rudeboy: The Story Of T

Scalarama festival launch: Rudeboy: The Story Of T


The first screening in Leeds of a brand new doumentary that traces the history of the world's most iconic ska, reggae and rock-steady record label, Trojan Records.

Trojan Records started in Jamaica in 1968 with Duke Reid’s Trojan Sound System. Rudeboy: The Story Of Trojan Records explains how music and immigration made connections between between Jamaican and British working-class youth cultures in the 1960s and 70s, starting a cultural revolution that unfolded in the council estates and shanty towns.

This film has sold-out at every previous UK showing - so don’t miss out! This screening is also the launch of this year's Scalarama film festival so come along and find out what's in store around Leeds throughout September.

Doors will open at 7.30pm, the film screening begins at 8.00pm with short introduction.

Director: Nicolas Jack Davies
Starring: Andre Dwayne, Marcia Griffiths, Toots Hibbert, Matthew Jacobs-Morgan, Bunny Lee, Don Letts, Lee “Scratch” Perry.
