Macka B (Wolverhampton, UK)
One of the most legendary toasters in reggae music for nearly four decades, Macka B has used his incredibly unique voice and powerful music to push dancehall music back to Rastafarian consciousness while tending to other branches of the reggae tree-like dub, roots reggae, and lovers rock. Macka B possesses one of the richest voices in reggae music, balancing gentleness and ferocity in every performance. His vast, expansive catalog of records stands as a testament to his massive lyrical prowess, displaying a remarkable ability to move between serious and more lighthearted subject matter in a way few other artists can. His ongoing “Medical Mondays” series on YouTube, promoting health and wellness, has brought him to a whole new audience outside the reggae world. With a stage presence to match his legendary output, Macka B & The Roots Ragga Band always put on a special show that all music lovers, not just reggae heads, are sure to enjoy.
