Red, Gold and Green (2) - Webmaster's Column

Dubroom Online - Edition November 7, 2007


WWW, November 7 2007 -The African Tricolor has a story to tell, told by vocalists on countless of Reggae tunes.

Red stands for the blood of the people, who were robbed from their homeland in order to work as slaves in what was called the "New World".

Yellow stands for the gold that was taken from the land of Africa and brought into the realm of the Red White and Blue, the so-called Judeo-Christian Civilization of the west that is identified by so many Reggae artists as "Babylon".

Green stands for the land of Creation, for Africa specifically. The land where everything began, according to Genesis 1.

Give Thanks, One Love,
Messian Dread (Dubroom Webmaster)

Aswad - Shine (Video Review)

Dubroom (DUB) Reggae Video Review

WWW, October 2007 - Aswad's magnificent track "shine" shows just how commercial Reggae can appeal to the heart and soul of even the Reggae Puritans among us.

Some would claim, the Reggae died somewhere in the 1980's. They wouldn't say it, but the mere fact that they would never check music created beyond that so-called "Golden Age" would reveal it.


Well, let's simply assume they never checked the true vibes behind the music from the 1990's.

Aswad's track "Shine", for example.

This track will make you move and groove fe true. A maximum use of digital technology is applied to create a -then- brand new sound experience. The theme of the lyrics deal with the very same topic, as we're told to "shine into the future"!
