About BFR Sound System:

BASS FOUNDATION ROOTS is unique in India. At present only two Jamaican style hand built reggae sound system exist in South Asia. The journey began with a crowdfunding campaign in 2015. It took over a year to raise the funds and get the components together to build this system and BFR Sound System was finally launched in April 2016.

BFR SOUND SYSTEM is owned and operated by Indian reggae artists Delhi Sultanate and Begum X. aka Samara Chopra, lead singers of The Ska Vengers and co-founders of Word Sound Power. BFR Sound System performances consist of a selection of strictly vinyl records playing a range of Jamaican genres as well as a vast collection of exclusive dubplates recorded it Jamaica’s leading Reggae artists.

REGGAE originated in the former Caribbean slave plantation of Jamaica and to date, is the only form of popular music that has a former colony at its centre, addresses issues of colonialism and opposes the Euro-centric Babylonian world order, while at the same time enjoying immense popularity all over the world. You might have heard Reggae music before, but never like this. Most Reggae music is intended not for private consumption on headphones or home systems, but for communal listening sessions on giant custom made sound systems. This is how the music should be heard and felt.

REGGAE SOUND SYSTEM lends immense power to the music and has the ability to literally vibrate bodies and objects in its surrounding. What is of the essence is not loudness, but the warm physical sensation of bass frequencies, engulfing you and those around you. Music becomes a physical and collective experience.
