Culto Caníbal presents: The Congos & The Gladiators

Concert of The Congos & The Gladiators in Barcelona - May 15th 2024

The Congos is a Roots Reggae group that was formed in the second half of the 70s, formed by Cedric Myton and Roy Johnson, who were later joined by Watty Barnet (who would not leave the group) when recording at Black Ark studios. for Lee Perry. From 77 to 79 they released 3 albums, Heart Of The Congs (1977), Congo Ashanti (1979) and Image Of Africa (1979). Heart of the Congos, by The Congos, produced by Lee Perry and released in 1977, is unanimously recognized as one of the best reggae albums of all time. Currently, despite being more than 75 years old and having almost 50 years of musical career behind them, the group after the return of Roy Ashanti is still active and stronger than ever. The Congos is one of the most representative groups of Roots Reggae and highly respected in this style.

The Gladiators have been the masters of reggae for the last 40 years. Following the rise and fall of many reggae artists and bands, they remain one of the most influential reggae groups to date, proving on stage and in the studio that they are without a doubt one of the best and most enduring original bands in real roots reggae rock. The Gladiators' unique sound began with Albert Griffiths. Following the recent death of Albert and passing The Gladiators on to his two sons, these two young reggae warriors have proven both live and in the studio that they are fully competent and are infusing new youthful energy and substance into carrying on The Gladiators' legacy. towards the future. The "new" Gladiators have already made a huge impact with their tours of Europe, Brazil, the South Pacific and Australia, in which they have gathered 70,000 fans in most cases with sold-out tickets. They are primed and ready to spread their message to the rest of the world on a new European tour in spring 2024.
