Oli Robinson

Oliver Winstanton J. Robinson was born in Kingston, Jamaica on 14th February 1946. Famously known as Mr Melodica, he did a great deal to popularise the instrument in western culture. In his 40 years he has played on any number of household names songs you would care to name including Barkestone skank, ipod skank, pizza skank, and, of course, the immortal nuts nugget skank.

He is pictured here in his early band: Toots, Maytalls and Robinson.
