HORACE ANDY (LIVE) W/ MAFIA & FLUXY + SAMSARA COLLECTIVE
Global Beats presents the Legendary Reggae Star Horace Andy with Mafia & Fluxy celebrating 30yrs in the business plus support from Brighton’s own Samsara Collective.
One of Jamaica’s most distinguished and beloved vocalists, Horace Andy is blessed with one of the most distinctive voices on the island and his emotive delivery just adds further weight to his reputation. His classic recordings from the ’70s remain crucial listening, while his more recent work with trip-hop heroes Massive Attack has introduced the singer to an entire new generation of devoted fans. Indeed, Andy’s work has been of such consistently high caliber over the years that there’s never been a time when he wasn’t releasing exceptional records.
As “one of the South’s most exciting reggae acts”, Brighton-based Samsara Collective create an open minded and fresh take on the roots tradition. Their music pays tribute to the original innovators of the genre while refusing to be bound by any stylistic conventions. The result is a fresh and hook-laden take on the style, morphing the reggae sound into something wholly new and exciting, and has been described as “a startlingly new angle on the Jamaican sound”.
