Jah Shaka has been operating his South East London-based roots reggae Jamaican sound system since the early 1970s. Despite being reggae, they were a huge influence on post-punk acts like Public Image Ltd and The Slits and dance outfits like Basement Jaxx. In 1980 Shaka played himself in the film 'Babylon', operating his Sound System in a soundclash at the climax of the story. Jah's devoted followers have developed dance steps that resemble African war dances, and the Sound System continue to appear regularly in London, with occasional tours of the United States, Europe and Japan.
