Jamaica’s Waterhouse district has produced a number of genre-defining dub and reggae artists, including King Tubby, Junior Reid, King Jammy and former Black Uhuru vocalist Don Carlos, who was part of the band’s classic reggae album Love Crisis (later retitled Black Sounds of Freedom). Now an elder statesman, Carlos has had a successful career as a solo artist and bandleader and has a legion of fans around the world. Though his musical peak was during the ’80s, when he had five top 10 hits between 1982 and 1985, Carlos remains a giant of the genre.
