-----------DUBTONIC KRU (live)------------------------
Coming from different parts of Jamaica,
the members of Dubtonic Kru individually have been exposed
to a variety of musical genres. The founding members of Dubtonic Kru
are “Jubba” and “Stone”, a dynamic Drum & Bass duo,
who over the years have contributed to the development of modern Roots Reggae, with their unique sound and approach that intertwines
Jubba’s mesmerizing Reggae/Jazz Fusion drumming
with Stone’s groovy, yet pulsating bass lines.
The Kru has gained about a decade and a half of experience from touring and or recording with the legendary likes of Max Romeo, U-Roy,
Burning Spear, The Mighty Diamonds as well as modern day artistes
such as Bushman, Junior Kelly, Richie Spice,
Lutan Fyah and Voicemail to name a few…
One of the significant milestones in their careers
was the composition of the “I Swear” rhythm,
a rhythm that took the Reggae arena by storm,
which featured Chuck Fenda’s “I Swear” and Richie Spice’s "Marijuana”.
The Kru became a more complete music machine with the addition of longtime friend and versatile guitarist Jallanzo,
who also added his strong vocal ability and the young but talented
Luke Dixon on work stations.
Another turning point of the group’s dynamic came with the addition
of a unique and powerful singer to round out the already electrifying dub compositions with sometimes spoken words and song writing
by Jubba and Jallanzo. Kamau, “the Quiet Warrior”,
brings a revolutionary voice to the Kru.
Their songs and spoken words are consciously thought provoking, while their rhythm/dub section walks through the passage of time
with a gritty sound that rolls stones and break fences.
this will be the closing night of the:
"They Have Cut Human Head: Paintings from the Ghanaian Mobile Cinema"
Native Ghanaian & Nigerian Horror movies,
Hong Kong Martial Arts films & American action features
were among the most popular in the mobile cinema,
so the majority of the posters featured are in these genres.
To this day the Ghanian mobile cinema still exists,
though in very small numbers.
The show consists of a collection
"of 15 hand painted film posters
from Ghana. Oil Paint on Canvas Flour Sack.
