Keynote Presentation: Lee 'Scratch' Perry

07-11-2016

Perry has been making music, collaborating and touring in a career that spans over 60 years. As a young artist he was a mentor to Bob Marley, and collaborated with The Clash and Paul McCartney, among others. In the 1970s he built ‘The Black Ark’, a recording studio in his backyard, which attracted diverse artists from around the world. The innovative sound he created with his band The Upsetters has made Perry a world-renowned figure. At the age of 80, he is still touring, living in Zurich, and is the subject of a 2015 documentary entitled The Upsetter: The Life and Music of Lee Scratch Perry. Don’t miss this special event.
