Latin Quarter were a British band of the 1980s and 1990s. The line-up in their 1986 heyday was Steve Skaith (main vocals, guitar), Richard Wright (guitar, vocals), Michael Jones (lyrics, some backing vocals), Greg Harewood (bass), Yona Dunsford (vocals, keyboards), Carole Douet (vocals, percussion), Martin Lascelles (keyboards) and Dave Charles (drums).


They released a total of seven albums, and found some success with the single "Radio Africa", which reached number 16 in the UK singles chart. Their sound mixed elements of pop, rock, reggae and folk with largely political based lyrics.

Latin Quarter also collaborated with The Bhundu Boys. They were also the first band to be managed by Marcus Russell, now the manager of Oasis.
