Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Within this book over fifty contemporary reggae artists and producers—ranging from Cultural Roots to Dancehall, and including Buju Banton, Shabba Ranks, Tony Rebel, Burning Spear, Bunny Wailer, Judy Mowatt, Oku Onuora, Junior Reid, Ken Boothe, Sister Carol, and Third World—present their views on the state of reggae music today, its developments since the death of Bob Marley over a decade ago, and the directions in which the music is evolving. Their voices interact with over 150 photographs of reggae artists and island life to reveal the thriving rhythm and pulse of Jamaican music and culture in the '90s.
