Black Uhuru
Black Uhuru
With roots in Jamaica’s reggae scene dating back to the early 1960s, Black Uhuru is one of the few bands that can claim continuity throughout the near-60 years of reggae history. Still led by founder Derrick “Duckie” Simpson, the group’s music maintains the original countercultural aspects of reggae, criticizing social injustice and economic materialism and extolling Rastafarian values such as Afrocentrism and social equality, combined with reggae’s deep, funky dance grooves.

The group garnered global recognition in the late-1970s and early-1980s touring with groups including the Clash, the Police, and the Rolling Stones. The group is also known for its longtime association with Sly (Dunbar) and Robbie (Shakespeare), the legendary reggae rhythm section and production duo.

Black Uhuru’s long lifespan has made them worldwide reggae ambassadors. With 14 full-length albums, seven instrumental dub albums, and four live albums, they have the highest record sales in reggae music behind Bob Marley. The album “Red” was voted #23 for Rolling Stone’s list of “100 Greatest Albums of the 1980s.” Aside from winning the first Reggae Grammy, Black Uhuru has been nominated five more times.
