Spear’s impact on reggae music is profound. The legacy of his music is one of self-reliance and self-determination for the African diaspora. With a career spanning over six decades, his live performance continues to be relevant, powerful and exhilarating.
From the 1970’s until today, Spear has been been a prolific recording artist with critically acclaimed albums such as Social Living, Hail H.I.M. and Resistance.
He has two Grammy™ Awards, for Calling Rastafari and Jah is Real, with 12 nominations. Burning Spear’s legacy as a reggae icon is incalculable, and his music continues to inspire and uplift audiences around the world!
Please join us in our excitement in welcoming
the one and only Burning Spear!
