Riddim is a Dancer

Former Disposable Hero of Hiphoprisy  star Michael Franti has released eight studio albums with his band Spearhead
Their 6th  All Rebel Rockers from 2008 is their most successful  to date and has a lovely reggae feel to it  - hardly surprising really given that Sly and Robbie are at the controls.
Cherine Anderson and Marie Daulne also pitch up to assist in the vocals department.
Around this time Franti even found time to play at three different events to commemorate Barrack Obama's inauguration.
