Thursday. February 18th, 2016

Widely regarded as one of reggae’s most influential musicians, Donat ‘Jackie’ Mittoo is unknown to many in contemporary dancehall.

On Saturday, the original ‘beat master’ will be honoured in a ceremony at his alma mater, Kingston College (KC).

Mittoo, who died in Canada in 1990, never graduated from KC. He left while in fourth form at age 15 to become a founding member of The Skatalites band.

The ceremony takes place at the KC Chapel where Mittoo honed his playing on the organ. His family will be presented with a symbolic school tie and a citation.
