A Windrush Day Celebration (of Bob Marley & The Wailers)

Tomorrow’s Warriors have announced its celebrated big band Jazz Jamaica All Stars & legendary reggae vocalist Brinsley Forde will be leading the Windrush Day 75th anniversary celebrations on 22nd June at the Southbank Centre in tribute to Bob Marley & The Wailers, plus the sweet sounds of Dem Three (Cherise Adams-Burnett, Cara Crosby-Irons and Kianja Harvey-Elliot) on backing vocals. Ever ambitious, they will also be joined by the stunning 246-strong community choir Jazz Jamaica All Stars Choir (aka Southbank Centre Voicelab Choir), led by Mark de Lisser, which will be bringing their collective voice to this wonderful celebration.

Jazz Jamaica All Stars have delighted audiences across the country with their jazz-reggae take on an extensive repertoire, including on tour with Hugh Masekela in 2004, when they marked the 10th anniversary of democracy in South Africa.

Their most recent projects – Catch A Fire and The Trojan Story – saw the band inviting community choirs to share the stage with them in a joyous celebration of Jamaican music.

This  Windrush Day special will continue this tradition, bringing fun, community and beautiful harmonies to the Southbank Centre.

Windrush was a generational moment that shaped the future of so many lives, changed forever how Britain looked and began a journey that made sure the whole world heard the sounds and voice of Jamaica.
