Tuff Gong Radio brings Soca & Afrobeats to SiriusXM

Following the popularity of their weekly Soca Afro Beats mix show, Bob Marley's Tuff Gong Radio is bringing Soca and Afrobeats to SiriusXM full-time with the launch of two new spin-off streaming channels.
Tuff Soca and Tuff Beats will both launch Thursday, March 25th online and on the SiriusXM app. Joining the Tuff Gong Radio team as curators are DJ Jel, ZJ Sparks and Brooke Bailey.

Cedella Marley, CEO of Tuff Gong International, declares "the story of three generations of Marley music isn't properly shared without including the full scope of the music of the Caribbean and African diaspora."

"One of the goals of Bob Marley's Tuff Gong Radio is to give listeners in North America a true taste of the energy and spirit of our heritage...It's exciting that the team at SiriusXM continues to recognize the power of Caribbean music and culture and work with Tuff Gong to provide such a great platform."

Curated by superstar selectors DJ Jel (Trinidad) and ZJ Sparks (Jamaica), Tuff Soca will showcase the hits and history of the genre with music from Machel Montano, Alison Hinds, Adam O, Mr. Killa, Skinny Fabulous and more. Curated by Ghanaian-born deejay Brooke Bailey, Tuff Beats has the latest and greatest in Afrobeats, from its origins with Fela straight through to the contemporary hits of Burna Boy, Davido, Tiwa Savage, Rotimi, and more.

To create exclusive mix shows for the channel, Cedella and her team reached out to iconic club and radio selectors Squeeze, DJ GQ, ZJ Sparks and DJ Jel help to round out the cast of recurring mix show hosts anchored by Cedella Marley's own Nice Time, an hour of musical niceness hosted and curated by Marley herself.

Fans can listen to Tuff Gong Radio on SiriusXM radios, online and through the SiriusXM app.
