The aim of this talk is to give an explicit computation of the monodromy representations of "cyclotomic" analogs of the Knizhnik--Zamolodchikov differential system. These are representations of the type B braid group $B_n^1$. We show how the representations of the braid group $B_n$ obtained using quantum groups and universal $R$-matrices may be enhanced to representations of $B_n^1$ using dynamical twists. Then, we show how these "algebraic" representations may be identified with the above "analytic" monodromy representations.
