Keola Beamer

Keola Beamer has helped to breathe new life into one of the world's great acoustic guitar traditions, the Hawaiian slack key guitar (ki hö'alu). The roots of slack key guitar can be traced to the 1830's when the guitar was first brought to the Islands by Spanish and Mexican cowboys.

The Best of Peter Tosh: Dread Don't Die

(You Got to Walk And) Don't Look Back -duet with Mick Jagger
Peter Tosh was one of the original Wailers and he stands tall alongside Bob Marley as one of the formative voices in the emergence of Reggae. His duet with Mick Jagger premiered on Saturday Night Live and introduced reggae to many Americans for the first time. This is one of my all time favorite reggae tune, stand up now and groove to (You Got to Walk And) Don't Look Back
