The sound of BLACK UHURU (1977-1985) with MYKAL ROSE

One of Jamaica's most distinguished singers, as a member of
Black Uhuru Mykal Rose was one of the foundation stones of
the roots movement, before launching a successful career in
the modern dancehalls.
His work with Uhuru helped bring the group a Grammy, while
his distinctive vocals launched an entire musical style - the
Waterhouse sound. The Kingston neighbourhood of
Waterhouse is where Rose was born, on July 11, 1957.
In 1972 he joined up with childhood friend Sly Dunbar.
He had a series of solo singles for various producers like
Niney the Observer and Lee Perry before being bought to
producer Prince Jammy. Jammy then introduced Rose to
Ducky Simpson, who was trying to reconstitute his vocal
trio Uhuru. With the enlistment of former Jayes frontman Errol Nelson, Black Uhuru was born. The trio recorded their 1977 debut album Love Crisis for Jammy, which was later remixed and given an international release as Black Sounds of Freedom.
Nelson quit the band soon after and Puma was brought in.
Black Uhuru was now complete. With their subsequent albums overseen by Sly Dunbar and his partner Robbie Shakespeare, and accompanied by the pair's band. the Revolutionaries,
Black Uhuru led the roots movement into the international
arena.
Across a glittering career of classic singles and masterful
albums – Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner, Red, Sensimilla,
Chill Out, Tear it Up Live, the trio reached a new pinnacle of
success in 1985 when Anthem won the first ever Grammy in
the newly instituted Reggae category.
