"DEEP, DEEP ROOTS" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, March 9 2009 - The "Deep Roots" series that we feature on Dubroom Online in this time, surely gives a good look on the history of Reggae Music and Jamaican in general.
There are several documentaries on Reggae Music, many of them reviewed in the Dubroom, but "Deep Roots" indeed goes deep.
Personally, I like the fact that the scenes are long.
Both interviews and sessions in the studio are in-depth. Unlike many of the video's made today, where things go with the speed of light, here we take some more time.
Of course, this is because in six hours, you can put much more than in the usual one or two hours in the usual video.
One Love, Give Thanks,
