Al Hardwicke Kassi (Musik.Al)

Al is the manager of Cardiff based reggae band, Captain Accident. He started in the UK voluntary sector in the early nineties as manager of the Albany Theatre, before starting his own agency specialising in global music. This resulted in him being the legendary Toots and the Maytals agent for 20 years until he passed. Throughout the years Al has represented Beres Hammond, The Skatalites, Steel Pulse and many others and still found the time to co-found the renowned London African Gospel Choir whose interpretation of Paul Simon’s Graceland is considered second to none, this project has never been funded and has developed as a social enterprise. Al’s expertise is in international touring, social enterprise in music and his company also has a UK Sponsors License as he has now returned to developing his agency.
