KFAI is proud to sponsor Black Uhuru at the Cedar Cultural Center on Sunday, November 24, at 7:30 pm.

One of reggae's all-time supergroups and celebrated pioneers, Black Uhuru are back with a vengeance, and with 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 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. The honored recipients of the first-ever Grammy Award for reggae music, Black Uhuru are at it again, better and stronger than ever before, performing songs from their recent albums as well as their timeless hits.

Mike Pinto opens. Pinto has crafted an exceptional style of songwriting, with a unique take on roots, vintage rock, reggae, ska and classic surf, but it’s his distinct voice and seamless storytelling that have brought him success both in the States and overseas.
