Reggae is the heartbeat of the people.

0:00:020:00:05

Vibration, which makes everybody all over the world become joyful.

0:00:050:00:10

It can make you want to dance, make you want to cry.

0:00:100:00:13

-You tap your feet, you can't keep still.

-Yeah.

0:00:130:00:15

Reggae is the most influential music in the world

0:00:150:00:19

and has been for the last 30 years.

0:00:190:00:21

The reggae that was coming over from Jamaica that we heard

0:00:240:00:27

looked at the world and talked consciously about politics,

0:00:270:00:30

about what was going on in society.

0:00:300:00:32

As a young black youth growing up,

0:00:320:00:35

reggae music was the music that spoke to me.

0:00:350:00:38

I was really surprised of the impact it had on the English people.

0:00:380:00:44

It's just changed the whole face of British music.

0:00:440:00:48

The beat is just there, it just grabs ya. That's why I'm a rude boy.

0:00:480:00:53

It's the thumping bass line, and the one-drop beat.

0:00:530:00:57

If it wasn't for reggae, we wouldn't have all the rappers

0:00:570:01:00

and the DJs that we now have, are now part of modern music.

0:01:000:01:05

Reggae music make a connection towards...

0:01:050:01:09

..the unification of mankind.

0:01:100:01:13

As long ago as 1974, as a member of the group Matumbi,

0:09:080:09:13

I had the privilege to share the stage with him.

0:09:130:09:17

He said, and I quote, "Baby, I'm not joking.

0:09:170:09:22

"And it's not what I'm smoking. I really think you're nice."

0:09:220:09:28

Those were some of the words from his hit song Silver Words.

0:27:490:27:51

You know, I'm about to present to you right now a hero.

0:27:510:27:59

His phrase is, "Move, y'all!"

0:27:590:28:04

And that sums him up, because I guarantee you that

0:28:060:28:08

that is exactly what you'll feel compelled to do

0:28:080:28:11

when he hits the stage tonight.

0:28:110:28:14

So, without further ado, let me present to you,

0:28:140:28:18

the one and only...

0:28:180:28:21

Big Youth!

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:28:230:28:27

# I pray thee

0:28:270:28:28

# Why do the heathen rage and the people imagine of such vain things?

0:28:280:28:33

# False kings of the earth had set themselves

0:28:330:28:37

# And the rulers take counsel together

0:28:370:28:40

# Against the Lord God Jah Rastafari and against his anointed, saying

0:28:400:28:44

# Now come, let us break their bonds asunder

0:28:440:28:47

# And cast away their cords from us

0:28:470:28:49

# Your leader seated in his heaven shall laugh

0:28:490:28:52

# The Lord God Jah Rastafari shall have them in derision

0:28:520:28:56

# For then shall he speak unto them in his wrath

0:28:560:28:59

# And vex to them in his sore displeasure

0:28:590:29:01

# Cos yet have I set I kings upon the holy mountains of Zion

0:29:010:29:05

# I will now declare the decree

0:29:050:29:06

# The Lord God Jah Rastafari hath said unto I and I and I

0:29:060:29:11

# That thou art I sons and today have I begotten thee

0:29:110:29:14

# Thou ask if I and I and I shall give thee

0:29:140:29:17

# The heathen for thine inheritance

0:29:170:29:19

# And the uttermost part of the earth for thine possession

0:29:190:29:22

# Jah shall break them with a rod of iron

0:29:220:29:25

# Jah shall dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel, I would say

0:29:250:29:30

# So be wise therefore, ye kings

0:29:300:29:32

# And be instructed ye false judges of this earth

0:29:320:29:35

# Serve the Lord God Jah Rastafari with fear

0:29:350:29:38

# And rejoice and tremble

0:29:380:29:40

# Kiss Ini, the Son lest he be angered

0:29:400:29:43

# And perish from his ways

0:29:430:29:45

# When his wrath is kindled but a little

0:29:450:29:48

# And so blessed be all

0:29:480:29:51

# Blessed be everyone, as I would say

0:29:510:29:54

# Blessed be everyone as I would tell you

0:29:540:29:58

# And so blessed be all they

0:30:070:30:08

# That put their trust in the true and living God, Jah Rastafari

0:30:080:30:13

# Then this man shall be like the holy mountains of Zion

0:30:130:30:16

# That cannot be removed but abideth for ever

0:30:160:30:19

# So the mountains round about I-rusalem

0:30:190:30:22

# And so the Lord God Jah Rastafari

0:30:220:30:25

# Is running about his people as I would say

0:30:250:30:28

# The lot of the wicked shall not rest upon this righteous

0:30:280:30:31

# Unless this individual righteous put forth his hands into iniquity

0:30:310:30:35

# So do good Oh, Lord God Jah Rastafari

0:30:350:30:39

# Unto them that are good

0:30:390:30:41

# And unto those that are upright in their hearts

0:30:410:30:43

# Cos such a one as turn unto his crooked way, you don't say

0:30:430:30:48

# The Lord God Jah Rastafari shall not turn his back

0:30:480:30:53

# To give a count to the right of his people

0:30:530:30:55

# A-when he come he make me tell you bout the song

An all-star cast celebrates the influence of reggae on the UK's music and culture in a live concert coinciding with BBC Four's Reggae Britannia documentary season.

Expect to hear hits from the 1960s to the present day telling the story of the musical evolution from ska, through rocksteady, roots, dub, lovers rock and beyond. Music director Dennis Bovell assembles a big band featuring some of the most important reggae musicians in the British scene to back up a star cast of singers and toasters including Big Youth, Ken Boothe, Neville Staple, Ali Campbell, Dave Barker, Brinsley Forde, Dennis Alcapone and Winston Reedy, Pauline Black, Janet Kay, Carroll Thompson and Rico Rodriguez.

The concert celebrates the journey that captured the turmoil and channelled the dreams of Jamaicans who came to Britain, those who were born here and the white kids who grew up alongside them and embraced their culture and their roots.
