Marcia Griffiths
Marcia Griffiths
Vocalist, born in 1954 in Kingston, Jamacia.

Marcia Griffiths started singing professionally in 1964, for Byron Lee and the Dragonaires band. Her recording years started soon after, at Coxsone Dodd’s - Studio One where she recorded her first hit “Feel Like Jumping." While recording at Studio One Marcia teamed up with Bob Andy and many duet recordings followed.
Following that duet success, she went solo again on the High Note label with Reggae's sole established female producer - Sonia Pottinger - hitting with several songs.
Ten years after entering the music business, Marcia united with Judy Mowatt and Rita Marley to form the I-Threes as an important part of the Bob Marley entourage.
Sly and Robbie
Sly and Robbie
Sly and Robbie are a prolific Jamaican rhythm section and production duo, associated primarily with the reggae genre. Drummer Sly Dunbar and bassist Robert Shakespeare teamed up in the mid-1970s after establishing themselves separately in Jamaica as professional musicians. Sly and Robbie are estimated to have played on or produced 200,000 recordings, many of them on their own label, Taxi Records.

Sly & Robbie have won several Grammy Awards since 1984, the first year Reggae got its own Grammy category. That year, they won with Black Uhuru. Since then, they have won a Grammy for best reggae album in 1998 with Friends and several others. They have also been nominated with No Doubt, for whom they produced two hit singles in 2001 (Hey Baby and Underneath it all).
