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