Video: U Roy and Soul Syndicate Live in USA, 1988

Dubroom (DUB) Reggae Video Review

WWW, September 2007 - The year is 1988 and the Godfather of Reggae DJ-ing U Roy teams up with one of the original Rockers Studio Bands of Jamaica to play a wonderful performance of their music before an audience

Because of Reggae Culture's nature, "any" vocalist can play with "any" band, at least when they know how to play or ride a riddim, as tracks are called in this Culture. So it's not unusual to see "unusual" combinations, such as U Roy and the Soul Syndicate.

Originally, the music played by the Soul Syndicate was recorded into the multitrack recorders of a Jamaican Reggae Studio. U Roy's voice usually was heard either on record or on top of a record in a live performance of King Tubby's Hi-Fi Sound system.

The year is 1988, and both U Roy as well as the band are already veterans in Reggae Music. Crucial stuff, therefore. Enjoy!
