Text by Harry Hawks
Date Added: Aug 16, 2013
The story of Tamoki Wambesi Dove is, in effect, Roy Cousins’ story and his struggle for survival and artistic freedom in a viciously competitive world. The history of The Royals, with the group’s ever-changing line up of harmony singers, is inseparable from the close-knit community of Kingston 11 where the power and strength of singing was one of the few legitimate ways out of the ghetto.
