Well known as ambassadors of reggae, Jamaican veterans Third World have been performing in one form or another since the 1970s. Despite several line-up changes over the years, the group continues to blend reggae, pop and funk for adoring audiences.

Third World has collaborated with the likes of Stevie Wonder and shared the stage with The Jackson 5 and Bob Marley and the Wailers. Dedicated to the spread of 'peace, love, and unity', the band has released 22 albums and garnered numerous awards, including the 1986 United Nations Peace Medal, and received 10 Grammy nominations.

Hear Third World perform a noon set for WXPN at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.
