Horizon Foundation Sounds of the City: Third World
Ten-time Grammy-nominated Third World, traveling with its Under the Magic Sun summer tour, has been entertaining fans around the globe for four decades, with smashes like “Now That We Found Love” and “96 Degrees in the Shade.”
These “Reggae Ambassadors” push the cutting edge of world music by mixing elements of R&B, funk, pop-rock and dancehall into reggae-fusion music.
One of Jamaica’s most popular crossover acts among international audiences, Third World is known for embracing themes that are positive, progressive and universally relevant. Singer Bunny Rugs describes the group’s sound as “Strictly a reggae band, no. Definitely a reggae band, yes.”
DJ Lumumba (aka Revolution) opens the free concert.
