The Meanings of Reggae Music

To attain a sound appreciation of Reggae music requires a Sankofa mentality. To realize Afrika’s place in the geo-economic-political-spiritual shaping of the world. One has to have roots that reach deep into the crevices of the blood fertilized earth and have a sense of the magnificent greatness of the Creators of the galaxies. The troubled waters and towns of the Island that first offered us this gift of soul reaching and universal Sound System, is a troubled piece of land. Home to a confluence of peoples from the East, South, West and North. Remnants of former enslaved Afrikans to and from the commercial centered of Babaylon, the unCivilized world that continues to profit from drinking the blood of the innocent

Reggae has become larger than itself, broader in outlook …yet what remains at its core and makes it unique, is the artists sense of Rootedness in the idea of Afrika, their devotion to themes of social justice, healthy lifestyles and freedom.
