    Inscribed in 2018 (13.COM) on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity Reggae has been added to a list of international cultural treasures which the United Nations has deemed worthy of protecting and promoting. The music, which grew out of Jamaica in the 1960s was added to the collection due to its "intangible cultural heritage". Reggae is "cerebral, socio-political, sensual and spiritual," said Unesco. It has "penetrated all corners of the world," added a Ja...

    Judging from the sleeve image of this third album by veteran collective Kingston All Stars, one might expect a solid revolutionary album, but that look turns out to be slightly deceiving. 'Rise Up' opens with the instrumental 'Boo Rock', a tribute to Kingston All Stars drummer ad interim and colleague Mikey 'Boo' Richards. Excellent opener and to be honest we were also quite taken with the other the instrumentals on this album, like 'Jamodica' for example, with a leading role for Robbie Lyn's...

    There is nothing contraband about Kabaka Pyramid's debut album titled Kontraband . The new 16-track set, from the artiste considered part and parcel of reggae's revival, has all the elements required for a strong, sturdy compilation of reggae music, and therefore something that should not be withheld from any serious reggae music lover. Never one for frivolous matters, Kabaka Pyramid gravitates towards issues relating to oppression and the multiplicity of events which form the black experienc...

    I was born on 4/20," Bob Marley's son Stephen declared with a smile Monday, embracing the unofficial marijuana holiday as he and brothers Julian and Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley announced the first West Coast edition of their family's Kaya Fest this April. It's no coincidence that the two-day concert – featuring all five performing Marley brothers and guests Ms. Lauryn Hill, Cypress Hill and Tom Morello – will unfold in California, which last year voted to legalize pot for recreational use.  ...

    “Veganism is a very fine form of nutrition. It’s a little extreme to tell a person who is using flesh foods that you’re going to take everything entirely away from them. When I was in practice in medicine, I would tell the patients that the vegetable based diet was the healthy way to go, and to keep away from the animal products as much as possible. People are very sensitive about what they eat. You can talk to people about exercising  relaxation, good mental attitude and they will accept th...

    2017 saw the historic reunion of some of the most celebrated musicians in Jamaica, a stellar line up from the era when reggae first emerged into the global consciousness. The Kingston All Stars are Sly Dunbar, Ansel Collins, Mikey “Mao” Chung, Hux Brown, Jackie Jackson, Robbie Lyn, Everton & Everald Gayle. Under the artistic direction of Moss “ Mossman “ Raxlen, a multi-faceted musician, producer, engineer and writer, the KAS band has released new recordings and will be performing live internationally. These are the musicians and session men who recorded at a variety of Jamaica’s legendary studios, and created so many of the classic rhythms from the 1960’s and ‘70’s – a countless number which have since become staples in a wide variety of today’s musical genres from hip hop to dancehall to dubstep and techno. In various incarnations, members of the group have been part of or recorded with Bob Marley’s Wailers Band, Studio One’s Sound Dimension and Soul Vendors Band, Lee “Scratch” Perry’s Upsetters, Peter Tosh’s Word Sound and Power Band, Toots and the Maytals, Now Generation and many more. Internationally, beyond Jamaica, many of the musicians in the Kingston All-Stars have worked with the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, James Brown, Grace Jones, No Doubt, Paul Simon, Serge Gainsbourg, Paul McCartney, Herbie Hancock and many other rock, pop and jazz greats. Starting in 2017, The Kingston All-Stars will shine a light on some of Reggae’s hit sounds and rhythms of the past 40 years.
