Reggae artiste Augustus Pablo

Augustus Pablo (Horance Swaby) was born on June 21, 1953 in St Andrew Jamaica. He was an Instrumentalist, Keyboard player and a Producer.

He started out in the music industry playing the Organ at Kingston College in Kingston Jamaica. 

Its reported that he was given a melodica by a friend, which he fell in love with and hardly ever put down.

He started his recording career working with producer Leslie Kong who operated and owned Aquarius Records and Store.

Between 1971 and 1973 he recorded a number of hits including "Higgi Higgi" and East of The River Nile.

His career as a Keyboard player started in the 1970s when he joined the New Generation which was owned by Mickey Chung.

He has more that 20 compilations including albums up to 2008, some of which was released after his passing in 1999.

Pablo is mostly remembered for his monster hits such as, Higgi Higgi", "East of the River Nile", "Song of the East", and "The Red Sea".

As a Producer he worked with most of the big names in the music industry such as Bob Marley, Lee Scratch Perry, John Holt, Dilinger and the list goes on and on.

He died of the nerve disorder "Myasthenia Gravies" on May 18, 1999. He was a strong believer in the Rastafarian religion.

Before I started writing this article in (2010), I asked my father Daniel what type of person Pablo was and he replied. "He was a Very easy going rasta man who loved music".
