Black Star Foundation goes Jamaica! (2005-2006)

The first week we stayed with the Hinds family in Steertown (village near Ocho Rios), family of the ska-legend Justin Hinds who passed away in 2005. With his sons we talked a lot about starting a Justin Hinds Foundation and a museum or memorial house for their father. With Floyd Lloyd Seivright, an old friend, artist and publisher (Tropic Music), we discussed diferent possibilities for cooperation, like a European tour with Ernest Ranglin.

In Kinston we spend a lot of time in different studios and we met a lot of different artists (like Damian 'Jr Gong' Marley!). For Ijahman Levi and The Mighty Diamonds, who were coming to Europe to tour later that year, we organised a show in Milkyway, Amsterdam.

In Steven Stanley Studios (Kingston) we recorded 2 riddims (drum/bass) with the Firehouse Crew and we expanded the record collection of Black Star Sound.

Besides all that, we visited a lot of stageshows and dancehalls and we really enjoyed this beautiful island.
