World Music Features Luciano
Reggae can sometimes be filled with spiritual filigree—songs showered with praises and inflated proclamations to Jah until they lose their meaning, and Luciano’s newest album Child of a King is no different—except that his exclamations are so sincere they’ll have you questioning your own devotion.

After 43 years of singing sweet, sweet songs, the empress of reggae has officially received her crown. VP Records is set to release Melody Life, the first Marcia Griffiths anthology, covering her musical career from its beginnings at Studio One, her 10 years as part of Bob Marley’s legendary I-Threes, and her continually evolving solo work.

World Music Features Joseph Israel
If the beauty of reggae lies in the voice of the Rastaman, then Joseph Israel’s voice may surprise you. The white reggae singer, who was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and currently resides in Fayetteville, Arkansas, breezes through his tunes like a true-blooded Jamaican, but away from the mic his excitable, energetic speech hovers somewhere between SoCal cool and Vermont hippie.

World Music Legends Steve Barrow
Reggae has left such an indelible impression on Blood and Fire Records’ A&R pro Steve Barrow that not only can the passionate 60-year-old remember the first time he heard the music but the first reggae single he ever purchased—and for a man with 22,000 7-inch singles, that’s no easy feat.

World Music Features Ras Myrhdak
Hailing from the blessed region of St. Ann Parish, Jamaica, the fertile ground that gave birth to famous islanders like Bob Marley, Marcus Garvey, Burning Spear and Barrington Levy, Ras Myrhdak comes off more like a spiritual warrior than a malicious fighter.

Fusing the sounds of soul, gospel, funk, rock, and ska into a reggae framework, Toots And The Maytals first recorded at Studio One in the early '60s with the Skatalites as their backing band. Since then, Toots Hibbert has remained a galvanizing live performer who never rests on his laurels.
