Tafari

Thirty years after Tafari Music's founder, Doctor Dread, first brought the sounds of Bob Marley, Burning Spear and Jimmy Cliff to the airwaves of Washington, DC, their catalog has grown to over 15,000 titles. Tafari Music represents some of the most popular names in reggae, dub, dancehall and world beats. The catalog spans the rich and dynamic sounds of Jamaican music while incorporating the artists influenced far beyond its borders from early pioneers and icons such as Gregory Isaacs, Bunny Wailer and Barrington Levy to Steel Pulse, Vybz Kartel and Mad Professor. Tafari's songs have been featured in major studio releases, national advertising campaigns and feature films and reached the Billboard Top 100 Lists.
