WWW, April 2008 - In this excellent video produced by Wayne Benjamin, Jamaican Reggae Vocalist Steele sings the traditional "Slave Driver" in a non-traditional way.

Half way through the video, the Nyabinghy drums drop in an otherwise completely drum-less track. It's all about the words, and they are sung beautifully by Jamaican Reggae vocalist Steele.

It is not un-intended, as one usually would want to have a strong drum and bassline just like the Africans who were stolen from Africa would want to hear the African drum in Africa. At least, that is the thought that came into yours truly.

Taken from Africa, to work on land that was not owned by the ones who kept them in slavery, only to live in extreme poverty until this very day.

The African Holocaust goes on, century after century. So take a few minutes to feel this track as Steele penetrates the soul in an excellent video produced by a director who is not afraid showing his work to the online (DUB) Reggae Community.
