African Cream Music is proud to present its latest long-awaited release,
Reggae from the Motherland
Finally, we have added a much-needed reggae album to the catalogue.
The music and message of Jamaican artists such as Peter
Tosh, Bob Marley, Don Carlos and Jimmy Cliff reached
Africa in the 70s and from then on inspired and influenced
a host of African musicians and artists. Reggae had come
back to its roots! Reggae would fuel the fire and inspire
the voice of the struggle for freedom in Africa. A
soundtrack to the fight against colonial rule and racial discrimination. A soundtrack to life!
“Reggae is not just one message. It is a lot of messages to different people in different situations – reggae is relevant to their situation. For me in South Africa during apartheid it was Peter Tosh.
He said ‘Africa is the richest place, but it has the poorest race.’ Sadly, that is
still true,” said the late, great South African reggae star Lucky Dube.
The Reggae seed is replanted in the African soil. New African reggae has branched out to
spread the message of peace, love and unity all over the world.
