The Tamlins

Origin: Jamaica

Main instrument: Vocal

Genre: Reggae

Jamaican vocal trio The Tamlins is composed of Carlton Smith, Derrick Lara and Junior Moore. In addition to recording their own material, the three singers were in high demand during the 1970s for their smooth harmonies, accompanying leading artists such as Delroy Wilson and Jimmy Cliff. Their path also crossed that of Peter Tosh, who they toured with internationally for several years. Since then, the group continues to record and perform. Their electrifying stage performances recall Jamaican legend Bob Marley and the dynamic American outfit Earth, Wind & Fire.
