Dutty Bookman on the Reggae Revival Movement

December 9, 2013 § 12 Comments

Since returning from one of the world’s largest reggae festivals – the Rototom – in Spain this past August, Jamaican author and cultural activist Dutty Bookman has been more encouraged to spread the vibes of the new reggae revival. He was invited to speak at the “Reggae University” there about the new consciousness in reggae music, the return to the message of Rastafari and Pan Africanism, and to the live, organic sound  that has been the hallmark of roots reggae. There was so much to cover when Dutty sat down with Afrofusion TV to talk about his passion for the Reggae Revival. His book Tried and True: Revelations of a Rebellious Youth,  published in 2011, was kind of the springboard for his involvement in the Reggae Revivalreggae revival. Creatives from the film, art and other industries in Jamaica and worldwide are also part of this movement; this past summer in Washington Dutty was part of a discussion about the revival together with Bob Marley’s granddaughter, Donisha Pendergast, and his good friend, reggae artist Protoje, who is considered one of the key musicians leading the revival. This is the edited version of our chat, and you can check it out after the jump. The complete interview will be on Afrofusiontv.com soon. Bless…
