Jamaican legends Toots and the Maytals, the group that coined the term “reggae”, have been grooving audiences across the world since the 1960s. They are also credited as a key player in popularising the reggae genre. The band, led by Frederick “Toots” Hibbert, has been a proven mainstream success over and again – with Vogue magazine including 54-46 Was My Number in its list of 15 Roots Reggae Songs You Should Know, and the band featuring at iconic festivals like Coachella in the USA and Glastonbury in the UK. Toots and the Maytals have also made appearances on Saturday Night Live and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Catch Toots and the Maytals perform at The Wharf Stage in Zone 1 on 20 September and Esplanade Outdoor Theatre in Zone 4 on 21 September.
