Beginning with the 1970s Roots Reggae era, the lyrics, the drums, and the bass provided the perfect vessel for communicating and spreading messages.

With the help of Bob Marley and the Wailers, these reggae messages spread across the globe.

Exploration of this global phenomenon leads to certain truths.

We discuss some history, events, and examples and give personal accounts of our experiences with spirituality, reggae, and religion.

Rewind Sundays ft. Highlanda Sound, Copper Ash and Natural Vibes (audio)

Experience the REWIND SUNDAYS ‘Jamaica Love’ Roots & Culture event (recorded live on August 19th) that showcased musical selections from some of Atlanta’s top DJ’s including Highlanda Sound, Natural Vibes and Copper Ash alongside Propa English. It was a musical treat with conscious music flowing through the air.

Who are the Best Vocal Harmony Groups in Reggae?

This mix features reggae’s vocal harmony groups from the 60s, 70s, and 80s.

I took it back to the roots on this one. I focused on songs with an impressive vocal arrangement. This is a specific selection of songs with male singers harmonizing together.

I featured The Wailers, mostly from the “Catch A Fire” album. That album has that very dry, grassroots sound. This was before instrumentation such as horn sections and electric guitars were added. Before the female energy of the I-Threes was added.

The mix also featured some of The Heptones‘ Studio One era hits. I dropped in some original Israel Vibration before they split. Other groups featured are The Techniques, The Abyssinians, The Gladiators, The Sensations, The Mighty Diamonds, and The Silvertones. You also hear songs from Lloyd Parks and We the People, The Sharks, The Royals, The Cables, and The Flames.

Listen to those names and you know these brothers were from a different time. These vocal groups created some of the most beautiful music and the most powerful songs. You feel their passion because of the emphasis conveyed within the harmonies. There was something special about those days.
