Ras Michael & Chinna Smith

Ras Michael & Chinna Smith jamming, Kingston (1995)

Two roots legends Jam in Chinna’s living room. Friends since way back to the Black Ark days with Lee Perry Ras Michael and Chinna have continued to play together over the years.

Ras lives in California these days but whenever he is in Jamaica he and Chinna always get together to play music. This was an incredible session, they had been rehearsing all day for Bob Marley’s 50th Birthday celebration and continued jamming until late into the evening. To be able to sit in and listen to the music that day & night was really an honor. Bob’s birthday show the following day was truly an amazing event to be part of and something I will surely never forget.

There is also a great video on YouTube of Ras Michael & The Sons Of Negus(with Chinna) last year at Red Bones Cafe in Kingston, check it out, it’s pretty awesome Nyabinghi music.
