Trojan Records: Celebrating 50 years of reggae

It went from a small record label in north-west London in 1968 to one of the dominant sounds of reggae music.

Trojan Records brought Jamaican music to a worldwide audience and to celebrate 50 years of the label, a one-off concert will take place at London's Southbank Centre.

Aswad founder Brinsley Forde said that like a "good wine", Trojan had got better with age and was now equivalent to "a 50-year-old bottle of champagne".

"What more can we ask for?" he added.
