Culture is reggae's preeminent harmony group. Born in the 70′s golden age of reggae, the ever viable Culture garnered continual US and international acclaim for its long series of classic "roots" albums.
Culture's level of energy and creativity are consistently superlative. They have performed brilliantly to spellbound audiences at countless festivals, concerts and clubs around the US and throughout the world.
Kenyatta Hill's career began the day his father's ended. Joseph Hill, singer and songwriter for the legendary Jamaican vocal trio Culture, collapsed and died while on a 2006 tour of Europe. To the amazement of promoters, fans and critics alike, Kenyatta stepped onstage and delivered electrifying performances time and again – nineteen shows in all – until the tour was complete. This was unheard of in any genre of music at any time. Kenyatta gave of himself so totally – as his father had for so many years – that the two seemed to become one, the eerily similar voices and the vibes igniting the critics and yielding a new reggae mantra "magic, not tragic!"
While pursuing an active solo career Kenyatta Hill keeps the Culture Legacy alive by thrilling old and new Culture fans with the classic sounds of this legendary harmony group. On this 10th anniversary year of the passing of the torch from father to son, Kenyatta continues as lead vocalist of Culture along with original founding member Albert Walker and long time harmony singer Telford Nelson.
