Jamaican queen of soul Judy Mowatt is in town

Judy Mowatt, Jamaica’s queen of soul and “first lady of worship,” plays tonight at Slim’s. Mowatt’s roots go deep; not only does she compose her own music, she was one of Bob Marley’s I-Three, the acclaimed backup singers in the Wailers. In 1985, she became the first female singer nominated for a Grammy for reggae music, with her “Working Wonders” album. Another recording, the acclaimed “Black Woman,” was the first reggae album self-produced by a woman. With her music, she takes on real issues, from spiritual inspiration to African liberation. Mowatt plays with the Yellow Wall Dub Squad and special guests Itawe.

The show starts at 9 p.m.; tickets are $25. Slim’s is at 333 11th St., San Francisco. Call (415) 522-0333 or visit www.slims-sf.com for more information.
