Echoes Magazine - November 2021 Issue

Xana Romeo, daughter of the legendary Max Romeo, talks about her new album The Root Of X and also issues concerning the current Jamaican roots scene in this penultimate edition of Echoes' 45th Anniversary year. Elsewhere I interview Tui from Hawaiian band The Late Ones, whose fiery blend of hip hop and roots reggae makes their latest set, The Fourth Quarter well worth a listen.

Run The Track features new releases by Skip Marley & Popcaan, Inna Vision, Jah Cure, Delly Ranx, Pressure Buss Pipe and Micah Shemaiah, whose Still heads the reggae Album Review pages and is a masterful collaboration with Zion I Kings.

In our monthly Vibes column I tell the story of BRAFA, British Reggae Artists For Africa, whose contributions to the Ethiopian famine appeal back in the mid-Eighties has now been rewarded by Hackney council, who've renamed a nearby square in their honour. Thanks to former Echoes' photographer David Corio for his help, both verbally and visually, in the writing of that piece.
