DUBROOM MP3 REVIEW
WWW, April 2008 - Reggae Vocal Harmony Group the Wailing Souls sang the word: "Every time you hear the sound of the drum, it is an African Beat". Africa Calling puts more sound to the word in a powerful and inspirational podcast of mainly -but not strictly- 1970's Roots Reggae.
It's written in the first pages of the Bible how Ethiopia was a part of the original Garden of Eden: the "Land Of Creation". Ethiopia, symbolizing Africa as a whole, takes a very prominent position within the Movement of Rastafari and Reggae Music as a whole.
This is where Africa Calling enters.
After opening with the inspirational Abyssinians track "African Race" we go straight to Africa to hear the only non-reggae track in this impressive podcast. We then move further into Nyabinghy, Dub, Roots, Rockers, even Rub a Dub style.
The mother land is calling, and this is her sound.
