Affiliated to the Jamaican culture of the seventies, Tu Shung Peng is a reggae collective born in 1998 in the south of Paris, composed of 9 passionate musicians. After the resounding success of their previous albums, they unveil their 5th album, named “Channel 5”. A true homage to Jamaican culture, but also the fruit of several years of musical production and human encounters made in Jamaica over time. The legendary vocal trio “The Viceroys” is featured in this album. Definitely one of the best roots reggae album 2020, which pays homage to reggae 70’s.
