6 Music Plays It Again - Blood and Fire - Roots, Reggae and Rastafari - Episode 1
Blood and Fire â€“ Roots, Reggae and Rastafari
Part 1/2. Don Letts reveals how the Rastafarian movement helped Jamaica recover its lost identity after years of British colonial rule and slavery and explores the movement's profound effect on Jamaican music, culminating in the emergence in the 1970s of one of the most exciting types of reggae â€“ roots reggae.
He also looks at how roots and the Rasta message found their way to the UK and spawned British-based reggae bands.
