Our annual festival of music, arts and learning is back! This year we’re looking to the future and talking about the future of music, music technology, music education and the music industry. Reflections takes place at Readipop Studios this April.
Inspiring workshops, engaging discussions, captivating talks and performances and plenty of opportunities for informal networking!
The afternoon session features a programme of talkshops, swapshops & workshops and space to reflect. Reflections 2016 presents John Pandit a.k.a. Pandit G (founder of Asian Dub Foundation) reflecting on his work with ADF, Community Music and RichMix and his life a musician, DJ and producer.
The evening features a DJ set in from Pandit G giving a flavour of his work the Asian Dub Foundation Sound System plus guest performers and DJs.
JOHN PANDIT – Original founder of the group alongside the bassist Dr Das in 1993, dj John Pandit is one of the most relevant figures in bass music and alternative culture of the last 20 years in UK. In parallel with their legendary live band, Asian Dub Foundation still performs in the original sound system format: an ADF official show, but in a dimension more suitable for clubbing and little stages. Jungle, drum&bass, rap, reggae and asian sounds are the ingredients of their musical selections, mixed in a skilled and exciting style by John Pandit aka Pandit G, and powered by the raw and charismatic mcs spitting out bars and vocals onto the typical sound system ritual
