The Wailers Bringing Reggae To Utah

Vocalist Koolant Brown knew what he was getting into when he joined the pioneer reggae band The Wailers in 2010. The band, lead by original member Aston "Family Man" Barrett, is best known for its work with Bunny Wailer, and the two late Jamaican-music icons Bob Marley and Peter Tosh, has sold more than 250 million albums worldwide and have 20 charting hits, according Billboard magazine."I wasn't nervous about joining the band because I was born listening to their music and I believe that many are called but few are chosen and they chose me," Brown said during a phone interview from the band's stop in Lexington, Ky. "Even before I joined, I had been performing with many of these people, and the thing about the Wailers is they love playing these songs and I also love singing for the people."

The Original Wailers

Many people know the Wailers, aka Bob Marley and the Wailers, as that set of musicians which included Aston Barrett, Carlton Barrett, Tyrone Downie, Junior Marvin, along with the I-threes (Rita Marley, Judy Mowatt, Marcia Griffiths) doing backing vocals, and Bob Marley on lead vocals. This aggregation emerged in the early 1970s under the management of music mogul Chris Blackwell and eventually became the most powerful force in reggae music. But the Wailers story began long before that. On a Monday evening in late 1963, five teenagers, namely, Robert Nesta Marley, Neville O'Riley Livingstone (Bunny Wailer), Winston Hubert McIntosh (Peter Tosh), Junior Delano Brathwaite, and the lone female and confidante of the group Beverley Kelso, entered the gates of Studio1 at 13 Brentford Road, Kingston 5 with the hope of creating musical history with four songs they had in their armoury.

Reggae is a complex Afro-Jamaican twentieth-century musical phenomenon that has profoundly influenced global popular musical culture. As a genre of modern black cultural production, reggae music dates from the 1970s, when it emerged from the musical confluence of ska and rock steady, two forms born in early postcolonial Jamaica. As a cultural practice in Jamaican postcolonial society, reggae was closely tied to subaltern representations of slavery, colonialism, history, and Africa. As a consequence in many instances reggae became a counter-hegemonic practice critiquing the formal Jamaican Creole nationalist project of political independence.

Ska was a 1960s musical synthesis that ruptured the Jamaican musical form known as mento, which emerged from the encounter between European colonialism, racial plantation slavery, and the slave African population. Mento adapted and morphed the harmonic structures, instrumentation, and melodies of European musical styles into indigenous sounds.
