WHY BLUES AND REGGAE?

These two musical genres were born out of oppression:

BLUES. Black Slaves would sing African spirituals, African chants and work songs while being forced to work in various plantations. This is where the blues was born.  

REGGAE. During the struggle for Jamaican Independence, the Jamaican youth combined rocksteady and ska to form Reggae music. It was their music of choice to express their struggle during that difficult time.

Blues and Reggae have served as a tool for education and communication among the oppressed. These genres have also served as a vehicle of peace between different cultures and communities.


In today's day and age, we need more of this music to educate and unite us all.
