Live in Israel for the first time

Guil Ras and My Lord in assosiation with Ya Productions is honored to present:
ERROL DUNKLEY (Kingston,JA) & The Young Israelites

The journey into the roots of Jamaican music continues to deeper and deeper layers, and this time a real icon who began his journey at the seam between the days of ska and steady rock, he began his musical journey in the major studios of Kingston, the music capital, at the age of 14. Errol Dunkley was born in 1951 In Kingston, he recorded with Prince Buster, Joe Gibbs and Studio One. The Kingston boy released hits that touched the hearts of all the islanders and became classics in the Caribbean and beyond songs like “You Gonna need me” “Please Stop your lying” established the boy as a big promise, into the early seventies with hits like “Black Cinderella”, “A Little Way different” and roots reggae hits like: Repatriation, Keep the Pressure Down, Praise Jah All the Time, Train To Zion and the song “Movie Star” who made history more than all the rest and later won cover versions, most famously by Bojo Benton and Wayne Wonder.

Errol is considered a singer of the people and his hits were regularly played in sound systems throughout the island throughout the late sixties and seventies as the gold of music. Errol, along with Gregory Isaacs and Dennis Brown, later became one of the figures influencing the development of the Labors Rock genre in England, with his album “Darling Ooh” which was a standard album at all those “blues dance” home parties where the sound system culture grew in England and the songs that were played were like love letters to home. In 1979, Errol hit the British charts with the most upbeat song OK Fred and set another landmark for the unbreakable connection between England and Jamaica.

Errol will appear in Israel for the first time! In association with The Young Israelites the band just released an excellent new album called Endlessly. Those who didn’t listen. Then it’s a must!
About two months ago, the Young Israelites accompanied Little Roy on stage, a rare performance in our regions, with an accurate reproduction of the sound of the sixties and seventies, with an original and exciting touch and arrangement. Little Roy fell in love with the band and keeps telling friends around the world about this special band. This time with Errol’s repertoire we will have another opportunity to see a connection between a Jamaican legend and one of the most promising groups in the global reggae scene

My Lord Music, Sister Ellen and Rankin Levy with a selection of Studio One, Roots, Dub, Soul and Rock Steady
A musical time tunnel to the best days of Jamaican music
A set of the craziest reality MC in the Near East from the Aimer Sound family, who pulls a selection from his private collection. A rare opportunity to see reality “play it differently”.
