Jungle Jam & Vagabondz present Twinkle Brothers meet Channel One
This event forms part of a national Roots Tours tour entitled TWINKLE BROTHERS MEETS CHANNEL ONE!
The Twinkle Brothers (Norman and Ralston Grant) are one of the best known original Jamaican reggae bands. Since the start of their career in 1962 the Twinkle Brothers have worked with many well known producers including Lee Scratch Perry, Bunny Lee and Duke Reid.

Channel One and The Twinkle Brothers enjoy a close working and personal friendship. This tour is the idea of Channel One's Mikey Dread who has long wanted to tour the sound system alongside the Twinkle Brothers. Mikey has been playing the Twinkle Brothers' riddims since the start of the sound system in the 80s, with some of the Twinkle Brother's tracks becoming signature Channel One tunes, such as Jahovia, Africa (Mikey's favourite) and Never Get Burn.
This will be a busy few weeks for Channel One, as on November 7th Channel One will defend their title as the Red Bull Culture Clash champions. In October 2010 Channel One beat the likes of Goldie's Metalheadz, Souljazz Sound System and Skream and Benga in a crowd voted live sound clash. This time the event will be held at Wembley and Channel One will compete against Major Lazer, Boy Better Know and Annie Mac presents Magnetic Man.
Hope you can make it to this landmark tour - Twinkle Brothers meet Channel One.
