In a spectacular concert, Gary Crosby and guests Brinsley Forde (Aswad), Noel McKoy and rising vocal stars Dem Three celebrate legendary label Trojan Records.

The Trojan Story features many of the best-loved anthems from the label, including Desmond Dekker's hit 'Israelites', Tony Tribe's classic 'Red Red Wine' and Harry J All Stars' 'Liquidator', specially arranged by Ben Burrell.

The line-up includes saxophonists Denys Baptiste and Camilla George, and instrumentalists drawn from the Tomorrow's Warriors stable.

They are joined by members of jazz string ensemble Tomorrow's Warriors StringTing and stars-in-the-making Dem Three (Cherise Adams-Burnett, Kianja Harvey-Elliott and Cara Crosby-Irons).

Established in 1968, London-based Trojan Records was the first label to distribute the music of Jamaica on a grand scale, becoming for many in the UK the first point of contact with Jamaican music and culture.

From the beginning, the record label encouraged people to celebrate and unite through music, breaking down barriers and promoting inclusivity.

Presented by Southbank Centre.
