Fundição Progresso brings more reggae pressure to the heart of Lapa tonight courtesy of Cidade Verde and the authentic Brazilian reggae team Monte Zion, who kick off the night before something of a first for Brazil, as the Jamaican Duane Stephenson fronts the legendary band The Wailers.

The world-famous group formed in 1969 with Bob Marley, Bunny Wailer, Peter Tosh and brothers Aston and Carly Barret in the line-up. Following Marley's death in 1981, Aston Barrett, the man behind some of those famous basslines, became the Wailers' frontman, the band going on to work with greats like Sting, Stevie Wonder and Carlos Santana, making this an essential gig for anyone with even a passing interest in the blissed-out sound of Jamaica.
