Count Ossie

Biography

The foundations of reggae and its own association with Rastafarianism were established by drummer, percussionist, and vocalist Count number Ossie (born Oswald Williams). Regarding his music group, the Mystic Revelation of Rastafari, Count number Ossie mixed African-influenced music using the Western european hymnal tradition to make a exclusive sound that motivated everyone from Ras Michael & the Sons of Negus as well as the Skatalites to Bob Marley & the Wailers and Toots & the Maytals. Count number Ossie’s earliest motivation originated from rasta elder Sibling Job, who released him towards the philosophies of Rastafarianism. A Nyabinghi drummer through the hillsides of Jamaica, Count number Ossie lower his 1st singles, including “O’Carolina” and “Chubby,” for Prince Buster in the studios of RJR Radio. From 1959, Count number Ossie documented for Sir Coxsone Dodd at Studio room One. As well as music movie director, tenor saxophone, flute and clarinet participant Cedric ‘Im Brooks, Count number Ossie shaped the Mystic Revelation of Rastafari. Seriously percussive, the group presented philosopher/orator Samuel Clayton; dual bass participant, poet, and vocalist Ras Michael, Small Bop and Count number Ossie’s son, Period, on fundae drum; bass drummer and percussionist Ruler Royo; percussionist and vocalist Bunny; percussionist Moses; baritone saxophone and clarinet participant Ras Sam II, and trombonist Nambo. There’s been some controversy regarding the cause of Count number Ossie’s loss of life in 1976. Although some sources declare that he was within an car crash, others state that he was trampled to loss of life when a group panicked in the National Arena.
