November 2016 Echo Chamber Archives

A very special night in the Echo Chamber as we presented our annual ALL-JAMAICAN special we call “One Fi Robert” dedicated to my late father-in-law. The night was made extra special as we had as a guest our long-time friend, the dub poet Ras Takura in the house from Jamaica! Finally, after a dozen years or so, we finally got Ras Takura to our fair city of Minneapolis — and he has made himself busy, performing live and on KFAI! The “One Fi Robert” special this year included great JA music from The Congos, Winston Jarrett & the Righteous Flames, The Heptones, Pablo Moses, Jah9, Ras Takura, Protoje, Augustus Pablo, King Tubby, The Upsetters, The Observers, The Aggrovators, U-Roy, Bob Marley & the Wailers, Lee Perry, The Skatalites, Roots Radics, Scientist, Big Youth, Johnny Osbourne, Oku Onuora, Bushman, Michael Rose, Sly & Robbie, Jimmy Cliff, Burning Spear, Prince Far I, Dub Syndicate, Niney the Observer, Sound Dimension, Damian Marley & NAS, The Supersonics, Dennis Alcapone, Sister Nancy, Techniques All Stars, The Eagles, Errol Thompson, Joe Gibbs & the Professionals, Alexander Henry, Sound Dimension, Third World All Stars, Tommy McCook, Ossie Hibbert, Lloyd Charmers & the Hippy Boys, Cecil Lloyd & his Orchestra, Delroy Wilson, I-Roy, Prince Buster, Jackie Edwards, and Leslie Butler. Hope Robert enjoyed it….and hope you do too!
