Ansel Meditation

As part of the foundation of reggae music, Ansel “Meditation” Cridland has over forty years producing, writing, arranging, and performing for fans all over the world. As leader of the legendary trio, (The Meditations) Ansel and his fellow band members performed at the historical ONE LOVE PEACE CONCERT, held April, 22nd 1978, at the request of Bob Marley.  Legends like Jimmy Cliff, Sly and Robbie, Philip Smart, Willie Lindo and Gregory Isaac are a few of the people that Ansel has worked with. These contributions have sculpted the sound of Roots Rock Reggae over the years.  Making The Meditations a fundamental and essential part of reggae music.

Over the past few years Ansel (who has produced all of The Meditations’ albums excluding three) have been the only remaining original member of The Meditations to continue touring.  Accompanying him for almost 10 years, as background vocalist are Laury Webb(who is also featured on The Good Of Man album) and Daddy Lion Chandell. Together, they’ve been touring the United States performing for massive crowds at venues like the Red Rock Amphitheater twice in seven years.  And returning in 2013, to celebrate Reggae On The River 30th year anniversary. A festival first opened by The Meditations and The Itals.

At 8pm ET each Saturday from a new classic performance will be released.
