“Talking Heads songs as shimmering one-drop reggae jewels”
Talking Heads famously sang, “This ain’t no party, this ain’t no disco…no time for dancing…” – that sentiment goes gleefully out the window when Mystic Bowie, aka the “Head Dread,” takes the stage!
Re-imagining and infusing fresh life into Talking Head’s classic catalog with his high octane mix of roots reggae, ska and lover’s rock (aka “romantic reggae”).
Since debuting his musically revolutionary Talking Dreads project live at the High Times Music Festival on the beach in Negril in late 2015, the charismatic Jamaican-born singer and performer has electrified audiences at over 100 shows across North America – spinning the heads of initially skeptical Talking Heads fans, and getting everyone else grooving along to the infectious, joyous rhythms and jubilant spirit of his native island.
One fine body…
