Third World leads an impressive line-up of great music to provide the perfect soundtrack for your exclusive enjoyment. It’s Saturday, April 16th at the North Beach Bandshell7275 Collins Avenue on Miami Beach.
Celebrating over 41 years, the ‘Reggae Ambassadors’, Third World is one of the longest lived Reggae bands of all time, and one of Jamaica’s most consistently popular crossover acts among international audiences. Mixing in elements of R&B, funk, pop, and rock and, later on, dancehall and rap, Third World’s style has been described as “reggae-fusion”. With 10 Grammy nominations and catalogue of charted hits spanning four decades, Third World accolades include, the 1986 United Nations Peace Medal and 1992 and 1996 Jamaica Music Industry Awards for Best Show Band. Additionally this performance is being filmed for a virtual reality production that will be released later this year.
Jo Mersa and Yohan Marley are the second generation offspring of reggae legend, Bob Marley and eldest sons of Stephen Marley. In the same tradition as their father and grandfather, Jo Mersa‟s & Yohan’s music has been deeply influenced by the reggae culture, family, and spirituality. Jo Mersa Marley is playing this show to support his new song on ITunes with Yohan Marley on backing vocals called “Burn it Down.”
The Baboons will be presenting the world premiere of their brand new CD Spanglish, a 15-song opus of Miami stories set to a syncopated South Florida soundtrack. The Baboons’ ambitious new bilingual recording features all-original songs that pay homage to Miami’s diversity and draw inspiration from the mix of global cultural influences found on the streets and beaches of their hometown. The seven-piece outfit features sultry singer Majica on lead vocals, founder Mano Pila on drums and vocals, Miguel Rega on percussion, Ike Blues on guitar and lead vocals, Michael Mut on bass, and Dominick Cama and Paul Messina on saxophones and flutes. Throughout the years, the band’s music has evolved into a rich global fusion that combines Latin American, Caribbean, African, Middle Eastern and American roots influences.
The show also features the Marley style authentic roots, rock, reggae of Big Harvest; Miami’s experimental reggae band Uma Galera; and holding it all together will be the renowned DJ Gravy, creator of Rice and Peas, the now-legendary downtown dancehall party he founded six years ago in NYC.
