"DEEP ROOTS" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, March 5 2009 - In six one-hour episodes, Mikey Dread takes us on a tour through Jamaica during the early 1980's. Not just that, he shows the history of Jamaican people and culture too!
Originally, the series (entitled "Deep Roots") was aired on the UK TV Channel 4 station, and the version that is available online isn't really of the highest quality, but this one is a must for every lover of Reggae Music.
We see Singers and Players of Instruments, Engineers, Producers, you name it. Long sessions and in-depth interviews, a wide variety of scenes and much more.
In the next 6 days, the Dubroom will feature all the episodes, together with a review.
Six hours worth of Reggae History, indeed!
One Love, Give Thanks,
Messian Dread (Dubroom Webmaster)
