Culture’s “Two Sevens Clash “40 Years Anniversary Tour
Kenyatta Hill on lead Vocals with Original Backing Vocals and Long Time Backing Band. This is an opportunity to go back in time to the beginnings of The Golden Era of Reggae and see how relevant it still is today
Arguably the best reggae record ever made and the only reggae record to appear in Rolling Stones Top 100 coolest records ever made. Culture made only strong albums for 30 years.
The vibe is strong as ever since Kenyatta Hill has taken the place of Joseph Hill on his passing while on European tour in 2006. Kenyatta Hill, Joseph’s son who had been tour engineer stepped away from the sound board and finished the tour in his father’s place as lead vocalist of this iconic band… and it was magical.
“Likewise, the band’s signature tune Two Sevens Clash, conceived by Joseph Hill as an apocalyptic prophecy to mark the ominous arrival of 1977, is still an infectious dance floor filler three decades later. Take away any sympathy factor and this would still have been a terrific show. More magic than tragic, it was less about death than rebirth. “ (London Times review)
Kenyatta channels the energy, the passion, the voice and mannerisms to a tee and must be seen live to get the full experience.
