Jah Vibes Soundsystem
“My first thought was: What kind of madness is this?” Sista Adilisha, one of the few women at the control tower, talks about musical madness.

Mikey from Channel One Sound in the UK called it ‘Musically Mad’ – and there’s no better way to describe the “business” of running a soundsystem.
