Resumen

A través del estudio de la experiencia de la ciudad industrial de Huddersfield, Yorkshire Oeste, donde la población antillana contribuyó a la cultura del sound system y el reggae en mayor proporción que su tamaño, se puede observar cómo la cultura sound system se desarrolló de modo diferente en diversos contextos urbanos en la Gran Bretaña de finales del siglo XX. El artículo utiliza más de treinta entrevistas de historia oral a personas que dirigían sound systems o fueron su público. Estas fueron recopiladas por el proyecto Sound System Culture iniciado por el Let's Go Yorkshire, entidad que se interesa sobre aspectos del patrimonio cultural oculto o no documentado por la historia convencional. Su proyecto proporciona una oportunidad para explorar cuestiones relativas a la identidad relacionada con el sound system, reggae y el entorno urbano británico centrado en un lugar y configuración del espacio específico. El artículo examina la importancia del club West Indian situado en el centro de la ciudad, posibilitando que la población afro-caribeña contribuyera visible y sonoramente al sentido de Huddersfield de su propia identidad
