Reggae Singer Luciano, Greatest Hits Highlighted

4

luci

We salute a living legend, reggae singer Luciano who has released 21 studio albums over the course of a brilliant 22 year career. One of my favorite artists and live performers, Luciano gained prominence around the world during the “Rastafari renaissance” in dancehall that took place in the mid-late 1990s. He established himself as a name synonymous with roots reggae and became one the sub-genre’s pillars.

This 1 hour mix of 42 songs focuses heavily on Luciano’s material from Where There Is Life, and Messenger, which were albums produced by Phillip “Fattis” Burrell and his Xterminator label. His latest album,The Qabalah Man, was released on the 29th of November 2013. Please support this phenomenally talented artist by buying his music/merchandise and patronizing his live concerts. You will not be disappointed.

This Reggae Lover Podcast episode opens with the leader of the reggae revival Protoje explaining that he makes music from his heart and not for the charts. Sizzla can be heard begging “Please do not mash up the dance.” George Nooks and Mikey Spice tell stories about having a good time in the dancehall. Alborosie excerpts that Reggae and rubadub music still rock the dancehall to this day.

Garnett Silk compares music to the rod that Moses walked with as he led the Father’s people to the promised land. Luciano sings about the many positive effects of reggae music on the body and mind. Richie Stephens and U-Roy sing out about the nicest times when real reggae music used to play.

Bryan Art describes the love and confidence that overcomes one when entering the dancehall. Christopher Martin paints the picture of a reggae road block where people are dancing in the streets, creating the perfect chill spot. Crooner Kashief Lindo shares a bit of his personal story on the song “Music Is A Part Of Me.”

Steel Pulse, Dubtonic Kru, Gramps Morgan, XO, Hero and Richie Spice all give their take on why Reggae music is so good and what it means to them. Busy Signal goes in about how everybody smiles and unites when positive reggae music is played.

Gentleman teams with Sugar Minott to reminisce about the good old days when there was no drama and the musical foundation imparted love and good vibes. Inner Circle alongside The Reggae Wave sing in defense of the genre.
