But without the work of Frederick Hibbert, as no one calls him ("Toots will do just fine"), it's unlikely any reggae albums would be sitting on the shelves of music lovers around the world, least of all the ubiquitous Marley compilation Legend. The original Toots band line-up, including Henry 'Raleigh' Gordon and Nathaniel 'Jerry' Matthias, are about the embark on their 50th anniversary tour. It's an incredible achievement; half a century of recording music and travelling the world, spreading their joyous reggae music.

single Souljah - produced by the A Team
In 1999, Valentine Nakrumah Fraser caught the attention of ace
reggae crooner Beres Hammond. Relishing the spiciness in the
young artiste's voice, the senior reggae balladeer also noted
Fraser's craving for the popular Jamaican brew known as ginger
beer. It was logically a short hop mentally for Hammond to name the
young man Ginjah. This is Valentine Nakrumah Fraser, an artiste called Ginjah, Mr Beres Hammond gave the name to me," Ginjah said, adding that he is representing black liberation, black consciousness, and the teachings of Haile Selassie I. Having been invited to be a part of Hammond's Harmony House label, Ginjah began recording in 2000.
And by 2001, he was on a tour opening for Beres Hammond several shows stretching across the major Caribbean cities, leaving behind a trail of satisfied patrons begging for more. "It was never an easy task opening for a musical icon like Beres Hammond," Ginjah admitted. Added he: "But I went out there and did my best and met the challenge with full force." As expected, with good work, comes more work. So Ginjah went on touring with Beres Hammond throughout the world, inclusive of places like Europe, Canada, the United States and Japan.

album of the same name. "You have a lot of albums that get lost in the mix, and this is a wonderful album, so we do not want this album to get lost in the mix. So we're promoting Music Alone to the fullest right now," Ginjah stated. He said that since leaving Beres Hammond, he has done over 30 songs. "I'm recording a lot. I've done songs like Thieves Says, Responsibilities - I've done that for Harmony House, also War In The City, Rise Above, Manners, and Go Thy Way.

experience. "This was the first time I was doing my own thing abroad," he said while adding: " The first

Last Friday marked the fifth anniversary of roots legend Joseph Hill's death. The former lead singer and songwriter of the group, Culture, died at age 57 after collapsing in Germany. The power of Hill's message continues to reach fans, mainly through reissued albums and his son Kenyatta, who has taken up his father's mantle since his death. Kenyatta Hill's latest album, Live On: Tribute to Culture, was released in March digitally by Zojak Worldwide. It was produced by Dean Pond, who has worked with many reggae artistes going back to the late 1970s. Live On contains Kenyatta Hill's interpretation of several of Culture's biggest hits including the immortal Two Sevens Clash andInternational Herbsman. Kenyatta Hill was his father's sound engineer on tour. He only took up singing after his father's passing. In a recent interview with The Quad-City Times, the younger Hill spoke about the unenviable task of filling his father's huge shoes. "The fans are like, 'We hear Joseph'. But for me, I'm doing what my dad would have wanted me to do," he said. Born in Linstead, St Catherine, Joseph Hill was a percussionist at Studio One, playing on hit songs like Freddie McKay's Hanging On The Wallbefore forming Culture in the mid-1970s. The trio was a hit almost immediately with Jah Jah (See Them a Come)for producer Joe Gibbs. In 1977, the group really struck it big with the powerful Two Sevens Clash, which warned of chaos on the day (July 7, 1977) the sevens clashed.
