In one of my latest post I already announced that the 59th Annual Grammy Awards nominees have been released (New Reggae Instrumentals for January 2017). The Award ceremony was held on February 17, 2017 in Los Angeles @ Staples Center. The Grammy is an honor awarded by The Recording Academy to recognize outstanding achievements in the mainly English-language music industry.
The Grammy award for Best Reggae Album was instituted into the awards in 1985. In that year Black Uhuru walked away with the award for their work on the album titled “Anthem”. Since then more artists and acts followed like; Jimmy Cliff, Steel Pulse, Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, Shabba Ranks, Inner Circle, Shaggy and more.
