The 2019 Wee Dub Fetival is co-headlined by a bona-fide godfather of the UK scene: Jah Shaka (with Adrian Sherwood at The Mash House on Friday).  Jah Shaka has been operating a South East London-based, roots reggae Jamaican sound system since the early 1970s. His name is an amalgamation of the Rastafarian term for God and that of the Zulu king Shaka ZuluWIKIPEDIA. FACEBOOK.  Shaka is regarded as the leading light in traditional soundsystem style dub music, whose dedication to the original roots style and spiritual marathon sets has gained him an almost mythic status globally – there is no more influential artist that Jah Shaka and his first appearance at Wee Dub is hotly anticipated.  Support from Bongo residents Messenger Sound System.
