Macka B & The Roota Ragga Band + Earl Sixteen

mackabjazzcafe

Described as “one of Britain’s most influential dancehall toasters”, Macka B (The Messenger) needs little introduction.

A British reggae artist, performer and activist with a career spanning thirty years in the United Kingdom and Jamaica, Macka B’s music is based around the political and spiritual message of the religion, with an often light and humorous touch.

Working with the Mad Professor, he has combined dancehall and dub styles of reggae whilst avoiding a more commercial crossover approach. Join us as he returns to his London home for his first show of 2019.

Opening the show will be cult reggae singer Earl Sixteen.
