Panama-born musician Filberto 'Fil' Callender moved to Jamaica with his family in the 1950s, growing up in the Molynes Road area of Kingston.
He played on some of the biggest hit songs in reggae history. These include Satta Masa Gana by The Abyssinians, on which he played drums and The Slickers' Johnny Too Bad, which hears him on guitar.
Filberto Callender recorded those songs while he was a session musician at Studio One and a member of the In Crowd band. He recorded two albums with the In Crowd: 'His Majesty's Coming' and 'Man From New Guinea'.
Since 1980, Fil Callender has been playing mainly in church bands. He also finds time to jam with his colleagues in the In Crowd.
At the age of 77, Fil Calender was awarded the Order of Distinction (OD) for his contribution to Jamaican music.
