Reggae evolved from Ska, Blue Beat, and Rock Steady. Much is owed to the creative talents of Jackie Mittoo, Don Drummond, Roland Alphonso, Tommy McCook, and Ernie Rangling to name a few. Great musicians working together to combine the influences of their roots and culture with the Jazz training and experiences gained from their excursions to the USA. A special homage is paid to Coxsone Dodd (“Encomium for Coxsone”), owner and producer of Studio One, the first black owned studio of Jamaica.
Legendary roots producer Nkrumah Thomas (better known as DJ Jah Thomas), has brought together old and new ridims in a style that is sure to please and tease your musical senses.
Solid bass lines, playful percussion and guitar, smooth piano and organ, from seasoned musicians Roots Radics, Mafia and Fluxy, Sly and Robbie, create the mood while the trumpet and sax of Dave Madden and Mathieu Bost play with your emotions, wailing, stabbing, and riding the melodies of Ska, Reggae, and Dancehall.
