The Skatalites are the creators of an entire musical genre, the ska. Since 1964 they are considered the fathers of popular Jamaican music, influencers of rocksteady, reggae, dub, roots or dancehall. The legendary Jamaican band continues to keep its legacy alive with the vocalist and founder, Doreen Shaffer “The Queen of Ska”. Under the motto “Still rough and tough” the legend prepares a 2022 full of musical novelties and a world tour with the incorporation of Larry Mc Donald on the percussion, who had worked with Bob Marley, Toots Hibbert and Lee “Scratch“ Perry, among many others.
