Description
 
Why was Bob Marley chosen to lead reggae onto the international stage? What is the importance of Rastafari in the development of reggae? What trends are emerging in the music today? The answers are here -- an entertaining exploration of the cultural, social & historical roots of reggae & its modern-day relevance. Author Foehr talked to internationally-renowned reggae stars at home & in the studios of Kingston, sought out Kumina dancers, Nyabinghi drummers, Rasta priests & Maroon musicians in order to explain reggae’s roots. The book is as much an evocative travelogue as a journey into the island’s unique music. “A voyage of discovery for music-lovers & travelers alike.” Photos.
