- Reggae, Roots
The roots of modern soul reggae
Toots Hibbert is one of Jamaica’s legendary voices, often compared to the great Otis Redding. His band’s career spans the entire evolution of the scene, from rocksteady, over ska to reggae music. Since the sixties Toots and the Maytals have been setting the bar of the genre, with big hits like Funky Kingston, Pressure Drop and Monkey Man. What’s more, no other band scored more number 1 hits in Jamaica; a perfect fit for #CoulCaf17!
