As an urban alternative, this is the place to savour the richness of 'good vibes' Black music away from the hectic heart of Carnival. “Arts-A-Light™” is where traditional and original carnival music roots and genres come together in a fusion. This is where tradition meets the modern in Gospel, African, Calypso, Soca, Afrobeats, Urban Gospel, Soulful House, Garage and Classic Soul music.
“Art-A-Light™” Sounds System brings a fresh and unique Sound to Notting Hill Carnival. At its heart is the communal care especially of young people and families. Their intention is to inspire and uplift Carnival veterans and visitors alike through good, clean quality music and attracts young people at Carnival with Vibrant Guest Acts and Artistes ranging from live theatrical performances and choirs to acrobats.
“Arts-A-Light™” Sounds-System is affiliated with the Eyukamba Foundation which has been associated with the Notting Hill Carnival since 1994. With their motto of “Breaking moulds, laying foundations and building through the Arts”, this Sounds-System hopes to continue the tradition of embracing the next generation of carnival revellers in this diverse city of London.
The BASS member sound systems are predominantly made up of the Sound Systems that you will find located at the annual London Notting Hill Carnival (Europe's largest street festival) which takes place every year over 2 days, during the August Bank Holiday weekend in London.
