Roots and culture live on with Mystikal Revolution

One of the more recent additions to the Jamaican roots reggae band scene is Mystikal Revolution, a six piece outfit that dropped their acclaimed debut albbum Divide and Rule earlier this year.

I had the opportunity to have a chat with Obrian Williams, one of the founding members and a very relaxed guy. When I reach him on Skype at his home in Jamaica he’s lying in the couch when he does the interview.

Several of the members are former students at the acclaimed Edna Manley College of Visual and Performing Arts in Kingston, Jamaica, home to several of Jamaica’s greatest musicians. And six musicians know their musical history – from roots reggae to rock and soul.

Obrian Williams and I talked about rock influences and the importance of culture. Read the full story over at United Reggae.
