Jamaica 50 Festival: Tarrus Riley + Gyptian + Natty
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Jamaica's independence in spectacular style, London's IndigO2 will play host to the Jamaica 50 Festival with some of the most iconic reggae, ska and dub artists appearing together on stage during a twelve-day event.
Despite being a small island state, Jamaica's cultural impact on the world and musical legacy vastly outweighs its size as the Jamaica 50 line-up testifies.
Bronx (New York) artist Tarrus Riley is the son of veteran Jamaican reggae singer Jimmy Riley. Tarrus writes thought-provoking lyrics with a message on Black consciousness and experiences, while his music is said to heal. Tarrus also takes an interest in youth education about Black History, resulting in a Tarrus Riley Freedom Writers Competition, which ran on Jamaica’s Irie FM radio station.
While he has mainly scaled the charts across Jamaica and the Caribbean, Tarrus has also taken his sound around the world to ever-growing audiences, with 2014's 'Love Situation' album, a self-proclaimed tribute to the Rocksteady era, reaching no.1 on the Billboard reggae albums chart.
