STUDIO ONE MURAL UNVEILED

 

A mural in honour of reggae legends and dedicated to Studio One founder Clement Dodd was recently unveiled at Studio One Boulevard in Kingston. Opened in 1963, Studio One was the first black-owned recording studio in Jamaica. Famous talents associated with Dodd and Studio One include The Wailers, Toots and the Maytals, The Gaylads and The Skatalites. Dodd was posthumously awarded the Order of Distinction, in 2007 for service to the Jamaican music industry. The artwork was done by United Kingdom–based artist Andrew Parle, a friend of the Dodd family.
