During 2012 there have been several efforts to celebrate Jamaica’s 50 years of independence from British govern. Concerts, albums and songs are some of the events that have occurred.
Together with United Reggae I have asked a bunch of reggae artists, producers and label owners to share their view on the history and future of reggae music. We received many answers, ranging from acclaimed veterans such as BB Seaton, Sly Dunbar and Bunny Rugs, but also from more up and coming producers and singers, including Million Stylez, Mista Savona and Etana.
Most of the people we asked share the same view – reggae has had a huge impact on music makers around the world and that the future looks bright.
But you can find out for yourself and draw your own conclusions when checking the 20 stories over at United Reggae.
