You may also have seen Hartman, who passed away in Tanzania in 1990 two years after his repatriation to Africa, as Pedro, Ivanhoe Martin’s best friend in The Harder They Come. When selecting our lists of 50 Great Jamaicans and 10 Jamaican Visual Artists You Should Know Hartman was a “must.”

You won’t hear fans of Addis Pablo and Suns of Dub complain about a shortage of entertaining content and music from the crew. The group, along with Jah Solid Rock, have just released a documentary to follow up their upcoming album (which you can preview here) recently released album In My Father’s House on the label. The 38-minute film is directed by Kush I, director of Jah 9′s “Steamers,” and Jesse Royal’s “Modern Day Judas” videos.

The In My Father’s House documentary features interviews with a number of different artists and musicians including legendary guitarist Earl “Chinna” Smith, who has worked closely with Suns of Dub and also played alongside Addis’ father, Augustus Pablo, at the height of his career.
