Cardiff: Reggae veteran hopes to create digital library (BBC)

BBC: Cardiff: Reggae veteran hopes to create digital library. “Veterans of a once vibrant reggae scene in Cardiff have called for its revival following decades of decline. It comes as one historian has made it his mission to archive the history of sound system culture online. Sound systems – huge banks of speakers with MCs and rappers – led to the emergence of hip-hop in the UK. Reggae historian Ashish Joshi has travelled the UK collecting old tapes and videos to create a digital library to keep the culture alive.”
