The history of the group originally simply called The Maytals dates all the way back to 1962, yet 2017’s Coachella appearance proved they’ve forged a legacy that cares little for age or musical trends. With frontman Toots Hibbert leading the way, they blasted out of Jamaica and helped open up global ears to the sounds of reggae. They weren’t the only pioneers but the Maytals sound, which incorporated ska and rocksteady, was relatively unique. Fifty-six years later, and the band might have split and re-formed a couple of time but the important thing is that they’re still here. They’re released more than 20 albums, and the band’s enthusiasm for their craft has never dropped. A Maytals show is a true experience, and one that should be embraced by everyone.
