Black Uhuru with Mike Pinto
Black Uhuru, one of reggae's all time super groups and celebrated pioneers are back with a vengeance, and a new studio album due out in early 2014!
Five-Star General, Duckie Gong Simpson and his Lion Lieutenant, Andrew Bees, lead Black Uhuru’s entrancing musical warriors into 2013 in the spirit of the true Rasta. Black Uhuru (which translates as “freedom” in Swahili), remain planted in their cultural roots of musical, political and spiritual convictions.
Back in the day, Black Uhuru broke the mold by touring worldwide with The Clash, The Police and Rolling Stones, among others. Black Uhuru, the honored recipients of the first Grammy Award ever for reggae music, are at it again and are better and stronger than ever before, performing songs from their recent albums as well as their timeless hits.
Black Uhuru’s roots are deep, their shows are fierce and they, like their music, remain innovative and progressive to this day.
