Habte Selassie

2010 Producers Choice Award – International Recording Artist – 20th Annual LA Music Awards

I had the good fortune to produce and host four retrospectives on the life and times of Tosh on “Reggae Roundtable” hosted by Habte Selassie on his programme, Labrish, which aired on WBAI 99.5 FM in New York. The guests included Tosh’s former bandleader and Chairman of the Jamaica Association of Artists and Performers, Steve Golding, dub poet Oku Onuora, musician/producers Sly and Robbie, former manager and lecturer, Herbie Miller, musicologist and Director of Reggae Programming at XM Satellite Radio, Dermott Hussey (who visited Brazil with Tosh in ‘83), Fikisha Cumbo, (who had a nine-year association with Tosh and is the author of ‘Get Up Stand Up: Bob Marley and Peter Tosh’ and radio personality Karl Anthony. A deeper understanding of him and his work could help to accord Tosh his rightful place in history. Peter Tosh should be honored.
