In celebration of the 40th anniversary of seminal reggae classic “Two Sevens Clash”, Culture featuring Kenyatta Hill have embarked on a North American tour. Acknowledged as the Reggae Album of the Year in 1977 and the only reggae album in Rolling Stone’s top 50 all-time coolest records (2002), Culture’s “Two Sevens Clash” was a high water mark in the career of original lead singer, Joseph Hill and for roots reggae in general. Showcasing the tenets of Rastafarian culture and built around a prophetic word from Marcus Garvey, the albums art and science have created an indelible effect. With the release of “Two Sevens Clash – 40th Anniversary edition” from VP Records, the group and the label will come together to promote the tour and the new album.
Comprising of lead singer Joseph Hill and harmony vocalists Albert Walker and Kenneth Dayes, Culture became a staple on the reggae tour circuit. After Joseph Hill fatally died during a European tour in 2006, his son Kenyatta Hill took his place, giving stellar performances and proving his ability to keep the spirit and energy of Culture alive. Critics and fans alike gave praise to Kenyatta’s resiliency to not only deliver Culture’s classic songs flawlessly, but to create new music of his own.
“Culture’s timeless music has been some of the most influential in the reggae genre,’ said Christopher Chin, President of VP Records “We are honored to be associated with this project look forward to the success of the North American tour.”
