Reggae Legends

Desmond Dekker
Bob Marley might have been reggae’s international icon, taking the music to an entirely new level. But long before he made an impact abroad, Desmond Dekker was the man who helped make reggae (and rocksteady and ska) into a global sound.
By Chris Nickson

Bob Marley

Bob Marley
Bob Marley remains the best-known name in reggae, even more than 20 years after his death. His real revolutionary stance and spirit helped make him an icon to most of the non-Western world.
By Chris Nickson

Luciano

Luciano
Luciano has been called “The Messenger,” and it’s a fitting title. He remains a leader among those next-generation reggae artists who’ve held fast to the music’s original intentions.
By Jeff Tamarkin

Dennis Brown

Dennis Brown
Dennis Brown packed as much music into his life as he could. He seemingly hopped out of the cradle and onto Jamaican club stages; he also cranked out records at an unyielding pace.
By Bruce Miller

Augustus Pablo

Augustus Pablo
Look no further than Augustus Pablo when it comes to reggae music heaviness.The riddims he dropped underneath his melodica and keyboard lines remain cornerstones of groove. 
By Bruce Miller

Peter Tosh

Peter Tosh
Peter Tosh was a musical revolutionary—he used words as bullets in his unending struggle. His murder robbed reggae of one of its most prized figures.
By Judson Kilpatrick

Alpha Blondy

Alpha Blondy
Having been a rebel for most of his life, Alpha Blondy kept the fire burning that first attracted him an international audience.
By Susan Cummings Maroni

Beenie Man

Beenie Man
Known for his throaty chuckles and “Zagga zow!” catch phrase, this rapid-fire DJ born Moses Davis in 1973 earned the alias Beenie Man as a toddler because he was “a little boy with a man’s brain.”
By Judson Kilpatrick

Beres Hammond

Beres Hammond
Beres Hammond’s gritty vocalizing and incomparable production and songwriting skills have earned him a remarkable place in Jamaica’s lush musical landscape.
By Patricia Meschino

Black Uhuru

Black Uhuru
The first reggae act to win a Grammy Award took its name from the Swahili word for freedom.
By Judson Kilpatrick

Buju Banton

Buju Banton
By the age of 19, Buju Banton was already the most popular artist in Jamaica, breaking Bob Marley’s record for the most number one singles in a year.
By Judson Kilpatrick
