Recalling the sounds of 1960’s and 70's Jamaica -- Saxophonist, Anant Pradhan seeks to revive the traditions of its early innovators like Tommy McCook & Cedric Brooks.
Their ability to spin popular & traditional/roots music into something uniquely their own became one of the hallmarks of Jamaican music to this day. Anant continues this tradition alongside one of Jamaica’s greatest percussionists — Larry McDonald (Gil Scott Heron, Lee Scratch Perry, Carlos Malcolm, Bob Marley, Count Ossie, and more)
Larry McDonald, calls Anant “the steward of our music going forward.” The band also features members of The Skatalites, The Far East, The Frightnrs, Charles Bradley & The Extraordinaires, Antibalas, and Combo Lulo.
Look out for their debut release in 2019/2020 on Brooklyn label, Names You Can Trust!
