Larica #100 

A precursor to rocksteady and reggae, ska music originated in the Jamaica of the 50’s and embedded itself in the annals of mod culture of the 60’s in Britain. Something of an unknown quantity locally, the genre is kept alive by the efforts of a few extraordinarily impassioned bands, the Næstved-founded Larica outfit being one such outfit.

Their centenary concert at one of the pearls of underground culture, Christiania’s Operaen could not have arrived at a more opportune time. Buckle up for a blast from the past.
