“Morgan Heritage” is undeniably one of the biggest reggae bands born out of the Caribbean. And on April 20, they will release their latest album, “Strictly Roots,” TeleSur reports.
The royal family of reggae, as they are aptly called, will be the headline performers at Groovin in the Park 2015. The mammoth reggae and R&B concert takes place on June 28 at Roy Wilkins Park, Queens in New York. Guided by sheer acumen and a passionate desire to make their already rich musical legacy even more impactful, Morgan Heritage, after much deliberation and contemplation, will triumphantly deliver their latest album exclusively on their very own label CTBC (Cool To Be Conscious) Music Group.
Undoubtedly one of contemporary reggae’s most powerful forces on the global stage, the sensational roots reggae quintet, which comprises siblings Peetah Morgan (vocals), Una Morgan (keyboard/vocals), Roy “Gramps” Morgan (keyboard/vocals), Nakhamyah “Lukes” Morgan (rhythm guitar) and Memmalatel “Mr. Mojo” Morgan (percussion/vocals) has embraced the challenges that come with empowerment of this nature. Strictly Roots is being regarded as a homecoming of sorts for the siblings’ reggae group which attended school in Springfield, Massachusetts, and spent their weekends in their father, Denroy Morgan’s studio in Brooklyn in the ’90s.
The legendary band has since stormed the charts with mega hits, such as Brooklyn & Jamaica, Don’t Haffi Dread, Down By The River, She’s Still Loving Me, Perfect Love Song and Nothing To Smile About. According to lead singer, Peetah Morgan “We know what our fans want; we know exactly where we want to take them and we know precisely how to get them there.”
