Video: Burning Spear and Mutabaruka Live At Reggae Sunsplash, 1982

Dubroom (DUB) Reggae Video Review

WWW, September 2007 - Burning Spear and Mutabaruka are both well-known for spreading their Rastafarian message.

In the year 1982, Rub a Dub music was the most popular form of Reggae. But definitely not the only one!

DUB Poetry was already made into a genre of itself, spearheaded by ones like and Mutabaruka. Deep Roots Reggae was well represented by Burning Spear and was -in spite of preterists who like to think Roots is something of the past- not about to go away either.

Burning Spear and Mutabaruka both performed on the Jamaican Reggae Sunsplash festival, the "Mother of all Reggae Festivals" if you will. In this video we are treated with two excellent tracks performed by the two strong vocalists.
