Black to the Roots: Reggae's Rise, Downpression, and Reascension Part II: Interview with Dr. Shabazz

 

Tune in for a reprise of one of my most popular episodes: a discussion of the past, present and future of reggae music with author and educator, Dr. R.A. Ptahsen-Shabazz. His book, Black to the Roots: Reggae's Rise, Downpression, and Reascension, is an in depth analysis of a musical genre that is often misunderstood by consumers and misused by the mainstream media. Dr. Shabazz focuses on the subtle processes by which the content, production and distribution of reggae became transformed and co-opted. His analysis concludes by examining the resurgence of the traditional roots themes in music, and the current market pressures that continue to impact on reggae production.
