Jubba

Deleon “Jubba” White AKA Jubba is a household name in the reggae industry.   He has recorded and or toured together with legends like Burning Spear, Toots and the Maytals, Max Romeo, U-Roy, The Mighty Diamonds and several other pioneers as well as with younger luminaries like Capleton, Junior Kelly, Richie Spice, Lutan Fyah, Bushman, Protoje, Jesse Royal and many others. Teaming up with bassist Strickland Stone, this dynamic drum and bass duo Jubba & Stone is often compared to Sly & Robbie.  Like their mentors, they have also been featured on several hit riddims and albums worldwide. Jubba & Stone, founding members of Dubtonic Kru, were at the forefront and helped spark the reggae renaissance movement in Jamaica. As the co-founder and drummer of Dubtonic Kru, Jubba led the band and represented Jamaica by winning the Prestigious Multi genre Global Battle of the Bands competition in Malaysia in 2011. Later that same year, the band was honored by the United States House of Representatives and were presented with a Congressional Proclamation by Congress woman Yvette Clarke, for their contributions through music to varying communities. The Simba Award (Young Lions) by CPR (Coalition to Preserve Reggae Music) was also another achievement. 


Certainly, the band’s successes during those periods, with extensive concert tours of Europe and the Americas, gave rise to a resurgence of bands on the local and international scene.   Previous to the above mentioned developments, in 2008, Jubba initiated the staging of two very important events, that were among, if not the very catalyst for the movement.  “Band’s Incorporated”, an annual event that featured self contained bands and “Plug N’ Play”,  a weekly event for all types of performing artistic configurations.  These two events hosted multiple major artists both local and International, such as Damian Marley, Toots and the Maytals, popular French band Dub Incorporation, Chronixx, Protoje, Raging Fyah, his own band Dubtonic Kru, Polish reggae pop star Kamil Bednarek, among many others. In 2012, the band was again honored with one of the Nation’s major publication, The Jamaica Star "People’s Choice Award”  based on a public voting system to be "Band Of The Year”. Jubba, an Edna Manley College of the Performing arts alumni, wanted more artists to profit from his tremendous musical creativity. He thus founded his production company White Stone Productions in 2011.  Carefully handcrafted reggae music with an international appeal and strictly conscious, uplifting message is his business.
