Black Uhuru

  • The Prestige: In a career that has spanned more than four decades and nearly 30 albums, Black Uhuru has emerged as the second highest selling reggae act of all time, right behind Bob Marley.
  • The Sound: Layers upon layers of dub vibrations that sway from breezy to urgent get glutes and boots shaking, heightened by jaunty upstroke rhythms and spacey vocal and keyboard effects.
  • The Name: translates to “Black Freedom” in Swahili
  • Red: Rolling Stone ranked this 1981 album as as one of the 100 Best Albums of the Eighties (ahead of records by Bruce Springsteen, AC/DC, and Janet Jackson) and described it as “a plea for cultural revolution and religious faith.”
  • History Making Moment: In 1985, the group’s Anthem—a musical valentine to Kingston’s Waterhouse district—landed the first-ever Grammy Award for Best Reggae Recording.
  • The Lineup: After four decades and many changing tides, founding member Derrick “Duckie” Simpson continues to lead the charge with fellow longtime member Andrew Bees, an ace rhythm section, and a new female singer who nails the parts made famous by the sadly departed Puma Jones.
  • Uhuru Hits to Expect: “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner,” “Sponji Reggae,” and the evening-defining “Happiness”

  • Tomorrow’s Bad Seeds: This Hermosa Beach five-piece conjures laid-back reggae rock on tracks including “One Way” and “Only for You.”
