"REGGAE CULTURE" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, November 19 2009 - Today, we close our featuring of Edi Fitzroy's oeuvre with a great track called "Deep In Mi Culture".
The track made me think about all these times wherein I had to face people who, let's say, never heard Edi Fitzroy's track, especially not lyrically. People who often had names for me which said more about themselves than about me.
They could be people who have been, let's say, unpleasantly confronted with religious systems. They could also be people who have uncovered the true purpose of these systems, which of course is nothing less than to keep people under spiritual slavery. And sometimes, they're people who are slaves to the Politikal Korekteness of the day.
In all cases, however, I see that there is an ignorance when it comes to at least a little understanding of that culture which Edi Fitzroy sings about.
One Love, Give Thanks,

WWW, November 2009 - In this title track from Edi Fitzroy's 1995 release, Edi Fitzroy explains what it means to be in that culture which produces Reggae Music: it has everything to do with a faith in the Creator Jah and reading up the Bible won't hurt either!
