BBC Radio 1Xtra returns to Jamaica for a week of reggae, bashment and dancehall

BBC Radio 1Xtra DJs David Rodigan, Seani B and Toddla T are journeying to Jamaica.

The three DJs will travel to the Caribbean to put together a bundle of exclusive music, interviews, DJ sessions and live performances that you can hear on 1Xtra from Sunday 18 January through to Sunday 25. They’ll be broadcasting from Gussie Clarke’s Anchor Studios and Big Yard Studios in Jamaica with live performances and interviews from the likes of Proteje, Jesse Royal, Romaine Virgo and the Penthouse family, Suns of Dub, Demarco, Alkaline and Jah9.

The station will be going backstage at Rebel Salute festival, one of the biggest events in Jamaica, while Rodigan will create the station’s very first reggae dubplate with producer Winta James, and Toddla T will host a Dancehall Cypher with Kingston’s young talents.
