    another fun group you introduced me to awhile back, I had not seen them in film before, thanks for posting this performance….anytime i hear this kind of beat it makes me want to be in the islands somewhere. :-)

    fantastic music and live performance! I was a bit surprised with the cool guitar solo about half way through. first came across these guys on a Thievery Corp cover on the cd “Abductions and Reconstructions”. Thanks again for turning me onto the real thing…

    Yes, they definitely have that island sound down. I find it hard not to dance or least do that thing with my head when Black Uhuru comes on.

    I was surprised how much they sound like a rock band when the guitar comes on like you say, Sean…
