The songs of the GRAMMY Award-winning roots reggae ensemble Steel Pulse helped to popularize the reggae diaspora across the US and Europe. From the success of their 1978 debut single "Ku Klux Klan," the band has addressed controversial topics of racial injustice and human rights with lyrics that remain as relevant today as they were at the beginning of their career. Hailing from Birmingham, England, the group's 40-year revolutionary journey of clever orchestration and potent instrumental melody continues to define the magnificent power and beauty of reggae music. Their continually electrifying live performances on stages around the globe have kept Steel Pulse's legacy alive for the next generation of artists and audiences. As part of Lincoln Center's celebration of Jamaica Day, a jubilation of the island nation's culture and history, Steel Pulse will perform a full-length concert, featuring founding members David Hinds and Selwyn Brown and tracks from the band's formidable catalog.
