Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare
Sly Dunbar was born in Kingston Jamaica in 1952. Robbie Shakespeare was born in Kingston Jamaica in 1953. Sly Dunbar is a drummer and Robbie Shakespeare is a Bass Guitarist. Together they have supplied the wicked Jamaican Reggae Drum and Bass backing to an estimated 200,000 tracks. They are both brilliant musicians and have collaborated with many other musicians in R and B blues soul reggae and rock. The duo’s reputation began to spread outside of Jamaica in the eighties, as artists and producers came calling in search of Dunbar and Shakespeare’s services. The beginning of the new millennium saw no slowdown in the duo’s activities, with the release of an experimental dub CD of their own. They have recorded with the biggest names in music all over the world.
