Toots Hibbert is a living legend & honored to say, an old friend who shines so bright I am still basking in that energy as I write this. What a beautiful, complex and rich voice of a music that means so much to the world right now. A man who began his musical journey in 1962 and has overcome so much along the way to always deliver excellence & upliftment to all. Give thanks!!! Love you Toots! The epitome of the word LEGEND. Catch me again with this amazing musical force on August 23rd at The Paramount! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #SelectressIriela #tootsandthemaytals #reggae #musiclegend #SecondWorldMovement #ReggaeRevolution


Making some very special selections! So excited – takin the stage tomorrow night going back to my reggae roots w/ living legend & the originator of the term REGGAE itself, #TootsandtheMaytals @tootsandthemaytals at Brooklyn Bowl! Let’s go New York City!!!!! Doors at 6pm sharp – Royal Khaoz will be in the house to nice up the vibes & Advance tickets are sold out, get to the venue early to get yours @ door! 🇯🇲 Swipe –》 for @jimmyfallon teaser of what’s to come tomorrow night!!! . Toots is one of the true architects of reggae –so much so that “Do the Reggay,” a 1968 single by Toots and his group, theMaytals, is credited with giving the genre its name. Classic songs written and recorded by Toots and the Maytals have been covered by the likes of the Clash and the Specials, and the group was featured in reggae’s greatest breakthrough event –“The Harder They Come,” the 1972 film that became an international sensation.The all-star guests on TRUE LOVE range from legends like Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, and Bonnie Raitt to younger stars including No Doubt, the Roots, and Phish’s Trey Anastasio. The caliber of these collaborators reveals the impact that Toots has had on several generations of rockers and rappers, while appearances from reggae icons Bunny Wailer and Marcia Griffiths show the respect granted to the man who might be the music’s greatest living vocalist. At the heart of it all is that voice –drenched in soul, rooted in gospel, and still breathtakingly powerful after almost four decades in the spotlight. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #pic @_peggypardo #reggaeNYC #SelectressIriela #Toots #reggae #musiclegend #vinyl #roots #dancehall #dub #upful #instagood #djculture #djlfe #vinyljunkie #brooklynbowl
