The Bodyguard looks to take 2017 by storm
Still on a high from the great performance of their play on the Independence of the Seas for the Welcome to Jamrock Reggae Cruise, The Bodyguard is ready to secure the enjoyment of crowds across the world.
The Bodyguard Sound System, founded by Courtney Singh in 1988, has evolved into a staple in and of the music industry, spreading Jamaican culture locally and internationally.
Singh said the the sound's mission is to "spread Jamaica's dancehall culture across the world and grow the awareness and appreciation of the sound-clash culture in Africa and China.
"We took a short sabbatical to assess our role in this industry; we're now re-energized and more ready than ever to take on the world as our musical oyster," Singh added.
With anthem dub plates Bad Like Yaws and Clarendon by the late Nicodemus, Bodyguard has put many a sounds "to rest". It boasts DJs Johnny, Junior Vibes, and Fiyah Wicked.
After almost three decades in the music business, the sound continues to be engraved above the rest and promises to remain that way.
"We stay true to our roots, but continue to improve as the years come and go. For 2017, it's all about reintegration for us," Singh said.
