African Reggae

Now here is a collection I would have loved to have been a part of listening to & tracking down the proper fits for. Putumayo presents, African Reggae, a collection of powerful and vibrant traditional and modern sounds from African musicians in part to pay homage to Bob Marley. His impact on the music of Africa is undeniable..and the theme of unity sung of loudly with hope for liberation and thus influenced each artist on this collection. From Ba Cissoko with Tiken Jah Fakoly and Mo’ Kalamity & the Wizards to One Love Family and Majek Fashek, the Jamaican influence on African music shows that spirit of connective unity betwenn cultures that make a musician like Bob Marley so memorable, and allows for others to build off that familiar rhythm and chants and continue in that ONE LOVE. A portion of the proceeds from this album will be donated to HOPEHIV in support of their efforts to strengthen the capacity of African children who have been orphaned or made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS.
