BOOK: The Passion of Reggae and African Music

BOOK: The Passion of Reggae and African Music - Drumming and dancing have been part of Africa's culture for ages as ceremonial activities initiated by the ancestors to appease the gods.

Unwillingly stolen away from Africa to the Caribbean, African music and rhythm finds its way to these islands in the form of reggae music.

Since then, reggae has acted like a magnet, creating a huge impact on the global music scene.

This type of music, which carries a prophetic message and spiritual lyrics, continues to influence musical genres, cultures, and societies throughout the world, contributing to the development of new counterculture movements in Europe, America, and Africa. "Reggae in the bathroom, Reggae in the bedroom, Reggae everywhere, Reggae in jail, Reggae in church, everybody likes it," sings Lucky Dube.

In this book the writer speaks to some of the masters behind contemporary reggae and African music.

The influence and impact of these great musicians is internationally known and is recounted with warm, sincere, and unrivalled craftsmanship that distinguishes them in the music world. Read the live performances and interviews of:
