Sierra Nevada World Music Festival 1997

The Congos

There are the most important reggae albums of all time, and then, there is a album which is beyond those. This is the Congos's Heart of the Congos (1977), produced by Lee "Scratch" Perry, remastered, re-packaged and re-issued last year by Blood and Fire Records. Let us just say that before you expire, you must listen to this, one of the Godliest pieces of music ever made. The Congos today consist of founding members Cedric Myton and Roydel Johnson. They are noted as much for their interesting, falsetto harmonies and beautiful, lyrical songwriting as for their African visions and consciousness. They have both recorded extensively since the seminal 1977 album and have re-united recently. This is the Congos's first perfomance in California and it promises to be a memorable one.
