Here are some of my picks for the Reggae and Caribbean music acts scheduled to appear for the 2018 SxSW Music Festival held in Austin, Texas.
We love reggae music dearly and we want to deliver a great show to our listeners. We are currently looking a Volunteer Technical Assistant who lives in Austin. If you’re interested in applying, please get in touch.
I did an in-depth interview with French-producer Guillaume Bougard of the TABOU1 label. He works closely with Sly & Robbie and has produced quite a bit of music since 1996.
One of our Texas reggae producers, Steve Ibanez has gone home to Zion. He had more than 70 releases on his I&I Foundation label. Ras Gilbert and I paid our respect and featured his works during the show on Tuesday, August 29, 2017 on KAZI 88.7 FM.
I enjoyed my second interview with Dartanyan “Green Lion” Winston on Tuesday, May 23, 2017 on KAZI. We discussed his new dub album with Sly & Robbie, Dubocalypse.
I interviewed Jiji Seven from Burundi about his music on Tuesday, March 28, 2017.
I interviewed Esco on Tuesday, February 28, 2017 and we discussed his new songs and his role as a producer.
What a pleasure to interview Kashief Lindo on Tuesday, January 3, 2017. I’ve been a big fan of his sweet vocals since the early 90s.
