Norman Jay is a British national treasure who has been awarded an MBE by the Queen. In his freewheeling 2010 Red Bull Music Academy lecture, he moves from childhood gigs playing ska singles at family gatherings to his annual must-see gig at London’s Notting Hill Carnival.
The Red Bull Music Academy is a global music institution committed to fostering creativity in music. We celebrate music, its culture, and the transformative minds behind it.
