When: Wed., July 2, 9 p.m. 2014
Hailed as a roots-reggae savior in his native Jamaica, 22-year-old singer Chronixx is credited with restoring the soul and spirituality of reggae music. With progressive lyricism and a willingness to adapt the conventions of early reggae with modern flair, the devout Rastafarian’s positive-minded take on roots has begun attracting fans around the globe — including Diplo, whose Major Lazer project released the singer’s Start a Fiyah mixtape in 2012. Touring in support of a new record, Dread & Terrible, Chronixx & Zincfence Redemption play Club Metronome in Burlington on Wednesday, July 2, with local DJs Big Dog and Jahson.
