I had an eye-opening conversation with Atlanta-based organizer for social justice, Ben Speight.
Ben tells how and why he fell in love with Reggae.
He talks about reggae as the soundtrack to movements of social change over the years.
He discusses the history of Ska and Roots Reggae, highlighting the political content.
He draws comparisons between Motown and music from the Rocksteady and UK Lover's eras.
Hear his thoughts on dancehall, Cali reggae, and the new school of roots rockers coming out of Jamaica.
This interview, episode 100 of the Reggae Lover podcast, is a testament to the diversity and power of reggae music. Like my guest said, please continue to support reggae music artists, musicians, DJs, and promoters.
