Reggae on the River

Reggae on the River

The 10th Anniversary

Earthbeat!

Reggae on the River is the northern California world music mecca that attracts some 10,000 pilgrims annually. Like most of you, I don’t have the right to put el Reggae Hajj before my name and this is my best opportunity to hear some of this fantastic music. A lot of world music and reggae’s brightest stars are assembled: Baaba Maal (the Jackie Chan of World Music — you have got to see his high-energy performance), Boukman Eksperyans, Jimmy Cliff, Angelique Kidjo, John Trudell, Ismael Lo, Annette Brissett (who sounds like Minnie Small after 40 years of Lucky Strikes), Third World, and more. It’s a nice, good-time double-CD and a real treat for world music and reggae fans. A gentle sway of a good time.
