Join Grammy-nominated artist Tippa Irie in conversation with British novelist Alex Wheatle in this exclusive screening of a live event to celebrate the launch of his memoir Stick to My Roots.
The ‘stream and book’ package includes a unique ticket for the stream, and a copy of Stick to My Roots (RRP £20) deliverable to any UK or international address. This event is FREE to watch.
For this brilliant event, audience members can expect to hear about the histories that shaped Tippa’s relationship with music, the development of sound system cultures and what it has been like crafting sounds that have allowed him to speak back home to Jamaica, the wider Caribbean and the UK.
This event will be filmed live at Brixton Tate Library with Tippa performing songs from his past and present catalogue in order to soundtrack the conversation and transport viewers to the world that he has and continues to inhabit. Sign up now to watch this incredible event.
