Roots Rock Reggae
Contest Entry #050- Roots Rock Reggae
My love for Reggae music resulted in me attending every possible roots event. Back in 2012, Lions in the Garden was held at Hope Botanical Gardens in Kingston.
Rain or shine, I had to be there. It was indeed a splendid night. Rastafarians everywhere, Reggae music filled the air.
Reggae is a music genre that was developed, here in Jamaica, in the 1960s. Meet Sheldon, Chris, Everaldo and Oneil , the 4 members of Nomaddz. I believe they were the night’s top performers.
Their songs, their image and even the instruments they used, depicted our Jamaican culture in so many ways.
One member played the tune of every song, so passionately, with his grater.
Anything wi hand ketch, we tek e mek music! The atmosphere brought me back to the good old days my Rastafarian uncle always talked about.
I wasn’t born in those time, but my experience at Lions in the Garden convinced me otherwise. The night was indeed amazing. Roots, Rock, Reggae music is the ultimate best!
