The Roots & Culture Scene is an ever-growing culture within Dutch society, with as common thread the Reggae music. Reggae has been on the background in recent years in our country, but this is about to change. Different cities get their local soundsystem. Backattack Soundsystem is the first soundsystem from Zwolle. A Soundsystem is at the heart of a political, cultural and artistic movement, focused on freedom and innovation. This originated in the ghetto of Jamaica in the 1950s. Here the Soundsystem was a valuable development for the poor population. They were given the opportunity to explore this new culture. In the end they excluded themselves from this mainstream society. Today it appears that the Soundsystem is a platform where many unique cultural alliances are formed because of the freedom that the Soundsystem offers.
