Addis Pablo: ‘Cassava Piece Riddim’

The following visual released today is for the song "Cassava Piece Riddim" by Reggae musician Addis Pablo, an instrumentalist who uses the melodica as his instrument of choice.

There is a special place reserved for the melodica as an instrument among classic Roots Reggae and Dub Reggae music aficionados.

This is largely due to the influence of Addis Pablo's legendary father: the great Augustus Pablo, who passed away in 1999, at the age of 44, from a neuromuscular disease called Myasthenia gravis.

Augustus Pablo was a master melodica player, who also played keyboards and the guitar. He was a very influential producer as well who worked with many legends of Reggae including: Bob Marley, Jacob Miller, I-Roy, Hugh Mundell, Horace Andy, The Heptones, Delroy Wilson, Dillinger, and Junior Delgado just to name a few.

Addis Pablo, to the delight of Roots and Dub Reggae fans, has decided to follow in the footsteps of his illustrious father. Reggae will be better off because of it.
