Description

Two celebrated storytellers, fired by inside knowledge and experience

Global Beats presents a seminal event - Roger Steffens and John Masouri - two of the world's most acclaimed reggae writers in conversation for two-hours of unique insights into the life and times of Bob Marley and the Wailers. The show includes rare and unreleased film and audio recordings of Marley, plus anecdotes and insights drawn from the speakers’ own experiences and knowledge of Jamaica, it's music and culture.

Both have made regular trips to Kingston and written extensively on Bob Marley and The Wailers, charting their lives and legacy in numerous articles and books. Chris Blackwell, founder of Island Records stated that “Roger Steffens has done more to preserve the myth of Bob Marley than anyone in the world”, whilst David Rodigan described John Masouri as "the world's foremost reggae journalist".

After their debut appearance in Brighton earlier this year, DJ and radio presenter Martin Sinnock described the event as "a great evening presented by two affable and knowledgeable Jamaican music historians."

The show will last two hours. This includes a short intermission, followed by a Q & A session. Both authors will then sign copies of their latest books.
