Dubroom (DUB) Reggae Video Review
WWW, October 2007 - Centered around Dennis Bovell who would also become known for his production works for Linton Kwesi Johnson, Matumbi was one of the hardest Roots Reggae bands to arise in the UK during the 1970's.
In this video, we will meet Matumbi as they perform for a UK audience back in 1978. While the people dance, the singers sing conscious lyrics over the vibrant music.
The video is obviously very dated, and this has an extra dimension. Some people will recognize the times, as they grow older, while a young generation will love the music and see people dancing to it in a time before they were born.
Whatever the case, be sure to enjoy this classic performance by a classic UK Reggae band.
