Club Crawl™:Speaking Truth 

Kingston's Rootz Underground takes spiritual reggae to higher

Reggae music is a genre in which artists are generally not afraid to speak truth to power.

The music has a storied tradition of rebellious singers, from Bob Marley to Burning Spear to Lucky Dube, who railed against society's ills and often suffered persecution for speaking out on behalf of principles they believed in. It was like that for decades, and that constant preaching of love and spirituality has attracted countless fans around the world.

This piece originally appeared in the New Times Broward-Palm Beach.
