Ska Wednesday

Bildergebnis für the skatalites

During the past days I turned into Ska again and stumbled into The Skatalites once again. They were more than a band - they were an institution for Jamaican music. Formed in the early 60's they played for vocalists like Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff or Peter Tosh. For me they are the godfathers of Ska and had a huge influence to every other band playing this kind of style. I don't have to say more because I am sure a lot of you will know them and every one have a special song for your favourite.

The Skatalites - Rock Fort Rock
