Dennis Bovell: Akoustik Live
A legend of British reggae premieres his new album at the Bernie Grant Arts Centre
Dennis Bovell quite simply is British reggae. He’s a master composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and MC. His skills have taken him from the roots of the UK reggae scene to international collaborations with artists as diverse as Arcade Fire, Shakira, Toots & The Maytals, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Marvin Gaye and The Slits.
Now Dennis is taking centre stage with his new album, Akoustik. These songs represent his journey through the maze that is song-writing. A mix of Dennis on acoustic guitar, piano, harmonium and vocals, Akoustik shows a new side of this man’s formidable talents – live in concert on our stage, Akoustik-style.
