20 Years of Amazing Music – ADF 20! Celebrates Asian Dub Foundation

May 9th, 2014 2:56 pm

The Drum and Shaanti’s Eastern Electronic Festival invite you to join us on a photographic journey celebrating 20 years of music from one of the UK’s most diverse and influential groups, Asian Dub Foundation, in ADF 20!, launching Mon 12 May at 6pm. It’s free, so come along and enjoy!

ADF 20! is a photographic exhibition that celebrate 20 years of the multi award winning band Asian Dub Foundation (ADF), featuring iconic images of the group taken by photographer Coco Edwards.

Edwards’ photographs capture the very essence and personality of ADF both on and off stage. From the electrifying on-stage antics of Steve Chandra Savale (Chandrasonic) thrashing wildly at his guitar and Pandit J playing bass and tabla, to Dr Das mixing in the studio with Bengali rapper Deeder Zaman (Master D), and Decknologist Sanjay Tailor (Sun-J) selecting tracks on stage.

The collection also features exclusive behind-the-scenes images of ADF’s prominent campaigning, including the release from prison of Asian warehouse worker Satpal Ram, who was incarcerated in 1987 for the killing of a white man in self-defence.

This is a unique, personal and insightful look into the legacy of a truly eclectic band. For music and photography fans alike, this is not to be missed!
