Third World

Recorded Aug. 05, 2014



Third World are one of the longest-lived reggae bands of all time, and one of Jamaica’s most consistently popular crossover acts among international audiences. While they were long capable of authentic roots reggae, they usually preferred to mix in elements of R&B, funk, pop, and rock (and, later on, dancehall and rap). Purists often criticized their music as tame and polished, overly beholden to commercial concerns. Indeed, they were regular visitors to the American and British charts during the ‘80s, but the best of their output was undeniably satisfying on a creative level as well.

Third World is one of the longest-lived Reggae bands of all time. Mixing in elements of R&B, funk, pop, rock, dancehall and rap to create their own style, ''reggae-fusion''. With four decades of smash hit songs, sold-out tours, 10 Grammy nominations, recipients of the United Nations Medal of Peace for inspirational messages, the band returned to the Belly Up on August 5th 2014.

The band’s reggae fusion sound has allowed them to make many musical collaborations with such artists as Stevie Wonder, Toots Hibbert, Marcia Griffiths, the late Gregory Isaacs, Sly & Robbie, Dean Fraser, Inner Circle, Mykal Rose, Junior Reid, Capleton, Stephen & Damian Marley, Tarrus Riley and Tessanne Chin. Celebrating the band’s 41st anniversary on this Tour the night included such hits as “Ride On”, “96 Degrees in the Shade” “Try Jah Love” and their own versions of “Sweet Dreams” and “Now that We Found Love”.
