Description

Toots & The Maytals

 

When you mention Reggae music, Frederick “Toots” Hibbert, Bob Marley and Peter Tosh are the three names the world immediately recognizes as the holey Trinity of the genre, and rightfully so.

“Monkey Man," “Pressure Drop” and “Funky Kingston” are just three of the thirty one radio hits produced by Toots and the Maytals over their legendary career.

Toots Hibbert is one of the great voices of Jamaica; a legend whose career spans every development in Jamaican music, from ska through rock-steady to reggae. Toots and the Maytals have helped to chart the course of Jamaican music with unrivaled delivery and dynamism, setting new standards of excellence, and becoming the most enduring of all Jamaica's groups.

Born in Maypen in the parish of Clarendon, Jamaica - the youngest of seven children - Toots began singing in the church choir at the age of seven. He left home in his teens to go to Kingston where he met Raleigh Gordon and Jerry Matthias and formed the original Maytals in 1962. They were also sometimes recorded as the Vikings.
