Black Uhuru, the legendary reggae trio from Kingston, Jamaica, splashes down at Hard Rock Café on the Strip at 8 p.m. July 28 ($22-$25) with ForTwentyDaze & Tierra Buena. Uhuru is Swahili for “freedom,” which is exactly what the band’s music makes you feel—a liberation of sound, movement and thought. They’ve released a number of classic discs since forming in 1972, but arguably Uhuru’s finest moment is their full-length release, Red. No less than Rolling Stone named it among the best albums of the ’80s. At times politically edged, Uhuru always has its musical heart set on getting an audience up and moving to the skank. Besides, reggae is summer music, and nothing sounds or feels better in the heat than surrendering to a Caribbean groove.
