Caribbean Uptempo

A musical cocktail of ska, rocksteady, early reggae, calypso, mento and Latin rhythms inspired by the Notting Hill Carnival

Caribbean Uptempo is a multicultural fusion of sound, images and colours run by Francesco Nembokid Selecta, founder of San Lorenzo Carnival in Rome –sister event of the mythical London carnival- and artistic director of the historical Sally Brown in Rome.

The idea of this space is born out of the special connection that links the sound ‘made in Jamaica’, oldies but goodies, with the deepest roots of Caribbean rhythms. A nexus that, can be felt here with music oscillating from reggae, rocksteady and ska through to calypso, soca and cumbia and other such styles.
