The Wailing Souls In Brazil Howard Campbell, Jamaica Observer Dispatch - March 2015The Wailing Souls have travelled the world, spreading the message of One Love through reggae. But the duo never performed in Brazil. Not until this month when they did five shows there.

"It's an amazing place. They have a great appreciation for reggae, especially roots music," said Lloyd 'Bread' McDonald, half of the Wailing Souls. He and longtime colleague Winston 'Pipe' Matthews did shows in Ribeirao Preto, Arbraquara, Piracicaba, and two shows in Pompeia. The shows were held March 11-15, 2015.

"It was really great, people were waiting on us when we arrived. They were big posters of us all over," said Bread. Brazil has been a happy hunting ground for reggae artists for 40 years. Jimmy Cliff, The Congos, Gregory Isaacs, Dennis Brown and Horace Andy have major followings there. The Wailing Souls have been together since the mid-1960s. They are responsible for classic songs such as Firehouse Rock, Jah Jah Give us Life and War.

They are scheduled to perform on several festivals on the United States West Coast.

The Wailing Souls, Legendery Roots Group
February 15th, 2009 The Wailing Souls are part of the small surviving group of reggae and roots originators still musically active today. The legendary group dates back to the late 1960s. The Wailing Souls members got their start learning from reggae icon Joe Higgs in Jamaica's Trench Town yards and sung alongside other emerging groups at the time including Bob Marley & The Wailers. By the '70s The Wailing Souls attracted interest from preeminent reggae producer Coxson Dodd and began a fruitful recording career. Four decades later the group has amassed three Grammy nominations, has been critically lauded for albums released by Island, Tuff Gong and CBS Records and gained a widespread international following.

The Wailing Souls saw large success in the early '90s featuring songs on soundtracks including the certified gold album for Disney's film Cool Runnings. Their 1992 album All Over The World also achieved a great deal of success for the group, selling over 800,000 copies.

The Wailing Souls pushed the musical limits of the reggae genre with that release, blending sounds of funk, r&b, and country into their roots tradition, securing their reputations as pioneers in the genre.

Fusing the harmonies of Motown with the roots and dancehall sounds of reggae, The Wailing Souls persist as one of the most powerful forces in Jamaican music. To this day, the group continues to release provocative, highly regarded regarded albums and is one of the most popular live reggae acts on the scene.

Additionally, the group scored number one hits with Things and Time, Jah Jah, Old Broom, and Shark Attack. The Wailing Souls' recording career has been nothing short of historic. Vocally trained by Bob Marley and the Wailers' teacher, Joe Higgs, they worked with legendary reggae producers including Coxson Dodd of Studio One, Henry 'Junjo' Lawes, The Wailing Souls With Stevie Wonder In The Early DaysChannel One Studios, Delroy Wright, Lloyd 'King' Jammy’s, as well as recording several early tunes at Bob Marley's Tuff Gong Studio.

The soundtrack album was an international hit, selling nearly half a million copies worldwide. The Souls had three songs on this soundtrack including the hit, Picky Picky Head. Formed in Trench Town, Kingston, Jamaica, in the late-1960s, The Wailing Souls have experienced numerous transformations. Their discography (over 26 albums to date) includes singles recorded as The Renegades, Pipe & the Pipers, and Atarra. Sly & Robbie and the Roots Radics are only a few of the stellar musicians who have worked with The Wailing Souls. Still one of the most powerful forces in Reggae, The Wailing Souls continue to tour globally and record new songs with the vigor that they had singing in Kingston's Trench Town decades ago.
