Honored with the Order of Distinction award for his contribution to the development of Jamaica’s music, Ras Michael, once considered an outcast from mainstream Jamaican society, proved to be a top seller in his Rastafarian culture and beyond. His humble beginnings began in the community of St Mary when he graduated as a master drummer before relocating to Kingston where he began to occasionally play on sessions at the Brentford Road studio of Clement ‘Coxone’ Dodd as an uncredited member of Jackie Mitto and the Soul Vendors. His contribution was essential to a number of classic Studio One recordings of the period including ‘Darker Shade of Black’ and ‘Drum Song’. He and his band The Sons of Negus soon became known as legitimate drummers that top Jamaican producers would call to add vigor to their roots tracks.
