Friday, December 8, 6 - 9 pm

Showcasing 70 years of art from and inspired by the Caribbean, this landmark exhibition from Tate Britain makes its North American debut at the AGO. And what better way to mark the occasion than by throwing an opening party with one of the legendary British-Caribbean DJs, music historians and founder of legendary ensemble Soul II Soul, DJ Jazzie B, who takes the stage at 7 pm. Additionally, Join us for a conversation with Jazzie B on Saturday, December 9. 

Jazzie B is a British DJ and music producer. He is the founder of the iconic, Grammy award winning band Soul II Soul and has produced and remixed tracks for many major recording artists. Born in London, UK, to parents of Antiguan descent, in recognition for his many contributions to British culture — his music, a clothing line, a record shop, radio shows on pirate station Kiss FM and for the BBC — in 2008 he was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE).
