Big pleasure of the LEGENDS OF SKA show in Toronto was seeing the LA Studio sessions hired gun/Jamaican expatriate Phil Chin play banjo in the 12 piece orchestra that backed the illuminaries; watching him keep time with this instrument reminded me of the ties Ska has with Jamaican Mento, where banjo was often heard.

Earl 'Chinna' Smith's Sticky Fingers instrumental album has a couple of tracks with banjo, if I remember correctly.

we produced it with both banjo & mandolin in an ethereal vibe. little unconventional and more on the hip-hop side of delivery but wanted to send it your way, strength & guide:
