Description

In 1964, local politician and record label owner Edward Seaga organised a showcase of Jamaican music to perform at the New York World’s Fair. Seaga, who would later become Jamaica’s Prime Minister, also hosted this show at the Sombrero Club in Kingston, one of a handful of clubs where the pioneers of ska and rocksteady made their name. Luckily for us, the BBC were there to film it. Listen to the earliest recorded live performances of future stars Jimmy Cliff, Prince Buster and The Maytals.
