Sly & Robbie go Latin, again

AMERICAN band Ozomatli has added a reggae flavor to their Latin venture qualified Nonstop Mexico for Jamaica.To finish this, the Los Angeles-based, six-part furnish looked for the aptitude of productive “Cadence Twins” Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare. The team are credited as makers of the set.

“When they (Ozomatli) clarified what they needed, we simply did it. We heard the tunes of the melodies and played what we thought would suit tracks, then sent it back to them,” veteran drummer Dunbar disclosed to Jamaica Observer yesterday. “I don’t think it took us a whole day.”

The Grammy-winning twosome of Dunbar and bassist Shakespeare have been making music since the 1970s. They have created, and played on tunes by Peter Tosh, Black Uhuru, Dennis Brown, Grace Jones, Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger and No Doubt.

This is not the first run through the “Twins” have gone down the Latin course. In 1999, they combined dancehall and Latin music sounds on a 16-track set titled La Trenggae. The set created hits including Foundation by Beenie Man, Quando (Ambelique), and Many (Scare Dem Crew).

Tricky and Robbie copped the Best Reggae Album Grammy in 1999 with Friends.

Agreeing Ozomatli, their set is “a gathering of reconsidered variants of tracks”.

“We thought it would be a smart thought to pick melodies from the Mexican tune book, old and new, and recording them in reggae style. That is the thing that got the wheels turning yet what got it to the following level was when Sly and Robbie got on board,” said Ulises Bella, band part, in an article in Billboard magazine.

Constant Mexico to Jamaica involves revised works of art including Bésame Mucho, Noa, and Tragos Amargos. It highlights Latin stars Juanes, Régulo Caro and Gaby Moreno.
