One Love Peace Concert: 40th Anniversary feat. Earl 16
In 1978 Bob Marley headlined the One Love Peace Concert, a one day festival featuring a host of reggae stars and legends that culminated in what many regarded as Marley’s most iconic live performance and his impromptu uniting of two conflicting Jamaican political leaders on stage. Join Earl 16, guitar man Ciyo Brown and a full live band as we celebrate this unique moment in Jamaican cultural history and delve into the set list of the concert itself, featuring music from the myriad of artists that performed as well as Bob Marley’s defining live set.
Earl ’16’ Daley’s voice is unmistakable – a cracked falsetto and a lazy delivery combine to make this voice most poignant particularly when riding a solid, roots rhythm. Earl has been a part of the international reggae landscape for three decades. Both in Jamaica and his current London home, Daley always finds just the right producer or team to elicit the rootsy music framework his voice deserves. This has led to landmark collaborations with the likes of producer and singer Mikey Dread, British electronic-dub/dance producers Dreadzone, and the dubmaster Mad Professor. It’s easy to see why Daley has become such a revered performer and sought-after recording artist.
