The Meditations from Jamaica w/special guests Chalwa
"The Meditations" are among the most beloved and respected harmony trios to emerge from the roots era of reggae during the 1970s. The group was formed in 1974 by three talented singers and songwriters: Ansel Cridland, Danny Clarke and Winston Watson. A quarter-century later The Meditations remain one of only two groups from the golden age of vocal trios to record and perform with its original line-up intact.

In 1978, the group worked with legendary producer Lee "Scratch" Perry, recording "No Peace," "Think So" and other songs at the fabled Black Ark Studio. These songs were included on the highly popular Lee Perry ARKOLOGY box set that was released in 1997. In 1977, The Meditations came to the attention of reggae's most famous artist, Bob Marley. He heard in The Meditations echoes of his own group, The Wailers, when they were first starting out. He tapped The Meditations to sing backing vocals on a number of songs, including "Blackman Redemption," "Punky Reggae Party," and "Rastaman Live Up." He also invited them to open the historic One Love Peace Concert in April 1978, where they shared the bill with Marley, Peter Tosh and others.

The Meditations also provided background vocals for a number of artists including Gregory Isaacs, Jimmy Cliff and The Congos (for most of the legendary HEART OF THE CONGOS album).
