In recent times with the surge of talented and upcoming artists forming almost what seems to be a musical army, the live music phenomenon is finding its rightful place as a fruitful form of artistic expression. In recent times, acts such as Raging Fyah, Protogé, Kabaka Pyramid, Chronixx, Jah 9, Jesse Royal and NoMaddz are finding their niche and moving from “underground” to mainstream culture.
Dubbed the Revival, music is experiencing an awakening, an uprising of self awareness. This is not just “rasta “music, it is music that enlightens and makes one think. It truly gives the alternative view of life and the times ahead are exciting to see the fruit ripen to fullness.
What is the appeal of these artists one may ask what makes what they offer different from mainstream stage shows? I will tell you. The live music movement offers the audience an intimate close up one and one interaction with the artiste which often gets drowned in the setting of a stage show. It’s the quality in and originality of the music, it’s the message in the music There are many more to come, many more to burst on the scene to contribute to the change.
“Real music d people want n need” words of the lyrical beast Kabaka Pyramid, this is the music the people hunger for while many will only hear the message, many will listen and begin to question, to lift their ignorance , to come to know themselves and finally become free. As for me… this music will live ….be alive…it carries itself with pride and awakens the roots.
Let’s support the movement.
