The Skatalites - Jamaicans in Prague

The Skatalites The Skatalites are a music group from Jamaica that played a major part in popularising ska. Consisting of some of the best musicians in Jamaica, they played together initially between 1963 and 1965, when they formed music accompaniment for many Jamaicans, like Bob Marley (not famous by far at the time).

In 60’s, they recorded many of their best known songs, including “Guns of Navarone” as well as playing on records by Prince Buster and many other Jamaican artists who recorded during the period.

They reformed in 1986 and have played together ever since. Today, they represent the same non-such for Jamaica, as Buena vista social club for Cuba.

You can hear them today, in Palac Akropolis, Kubelikova 27, Prague 3. The session starts 19:30
