World of Reggae Music Collection: Reggae Around the World

The Other Side
The World of Reggae Music Collection
Reggae Around the World

As the 2010 FIFA World Cup engages the world the selector wishes to offer up an international collection of reggae music in this latest edition of the World of Reggae Music Collection. Reggae has gone international! From the African musicians represented by Ivory Coast’s Alpha Blondy, Ghanian music man Rocky Duwani, and the South African legend Lucky Dube…to the European Noiseshaper of Austria, Seeed of Germany, and the UK supergroup UB40, reggae has spread around the globe beyond the shores of Jamaica. Its influence extends from the backwoods farms of Texas where the iconic Willie Nelson records reggae in the Hill Country to the farthest reaches of the Middle East and beyond to the South Pacific and Asia, where New Zealand’s Salmonella Dub and Japan’s Dry & Heavy lay down thick dubby bass lines full of roots and culture. Reggae is truly a global affair.
