Description

Manley Augustus Buchanan, better known as Big Youth, was born in 1949 in Kingston’s Trench Town. Jah Yout’, as he is affectionately called, is one of reggae’s greatest DJs and one of roots reggae’s greatest performers, DJing Rasta themes with unbridled enthusiasm and unmatched creativity. He is a charismatic figure, with stones in the Rastafarian colors of red, green and gold set into the front teeth of his typically smiling, always dreadlock-framed face.
