According to a recent interview with Burning Spear, he states that Reggae is losing its roots and if we ever expect the music to return to its glory days the producers need to know that the music needs direction!
He realizes that young producers turned the once organic sound of reggae to an artificial beat by using equipments that mimic the sounds of an authentic band.
“The music has changed,” Spear said. “There’s a different flavor, taste and type of arrangement. There’s less musicians playing their instruments; it’s a programming thing now. The kids are singing off-key.”
Spear also states that he feels it is difficult but imperative for Jamaica to build a national recording studio that offers budding producers and musicians an opportunity while encouraging them to record music the traditional way.
“We need more traditional reggae – the youth of today are not looking in that direction and not going with that,” Spear stated. “We need a stronger voice. I think a lot of people in Jamaica don’t know the strength of this music and what the music has done for people all over the world.”
This is the latest episode of the syndicated Reggae Vault Classics podcast produced for promotional purposes only by Kahlil Wonda of Highlanda Sound for the week of July 21, 2009 featuring classic reggae music in a DJ mixed format with no talking.
This is definitely the biggest vault classic episode because this one deals strictly with the music of the Legend himself, The Honorable Robert Nesta Marley. This is an audio montage in tribute to the man who has influenced world culture through his music and brought reggae music to the far corners of the universe.
