Reggae music for everyone

Andrew Tosh, son of the legendary Peter Tosh and the writer Joel Savage

Reggae legend Joseph Hill of Culture and Joel SavageI never had the opportunity to see Peter Tosh and Bob Marley performing live in concert, so when the sons of Bob Marley and Peter Tosh, came to Antwerp, I tried my best to see them.

Joel Savage and Julian Marley, son of the great Bob Marley,

  Talking to Andrew Tosh and Julian Marley, over what their fathers achieved in the field of reggae was very interesting. Both Andrew and Julian bore striking features of their father. Below are part of the interviews I had with Andrew Tosh and Julian Marley.

Andrew, your father, everyone knows was one of the greatest reggae stars the world ever produced. What actually inspired you into music?

Jamaican reggae star, Capleton, in Antwerp with the writer Joel Savage

Definitely, my father was my biggest influence in music. He thought me how to play the piano when I was very young. He was like a teacher who guided me through my childhood to gain broader knowledge in music.

I listened to your ‘Message from Jah’ album; the track ‘Come Together’ is very touching. What inspired you to write that song?

With the group The Congos

I love people, so I interact with them. Singing is one of the ways to meet them.

What is your long-range objective in music?

Currently, I am working on my new album called ‘Focus’ and also working on one called ‘Andrew sings Peter Tosh’. He never dies.

How has your father’s experience influenced you as a reggae star?

My father’s experience is both good and bad. He had a very bad experience with the Babylon system, but as I said before, the good part of it is inspiring me into music.

Many musicians sing about Africa and the love to visit or return to the continent, but they never keep their promise. Why is it so?

I have been to a lot of places over there, including South Africa and Angola. I think some of these artists don’t recognise the true culture of the continent. Even though some may wish to there, they don’t know how to organise that.

You are one of the sons of the great Bob Marley. How possible all your brothers are in music at the same time?

Well, we were young but as we grow we discovered what our father was doing or did. It’s in the blood or probably could be hereditary. We were all inspired by our father’s great musical talent as an international reggae star. That’s the reason we are all in music.

How do you get on with other brothers from your father?

We see ourselves as Marley brothers and nothing more. We are happy together and our aim is to continue spreading the message or do what our father left undone. Thus; we are one big happy musical family.

Do your father had any idea that one day he is going to change the reggae world?

My father was a man who never gives up so easily in whatever he was doing. His heart couldn’t take any defeat he therefore, haven’t any sense of failure in him. If someone has that heart, it means he wanted to achieve something positive as a musician. In this case, he had an idea to achieve something different.

Face To Face With The Great Joseph Hill Of The Group Called Culture

Culture was one of Jamaica's best reggae groups

Joel Savage interviews Reggae legend Joseph Hill of Culture

Down in Jamaica, where Garvey comes from many groups and musicians started in the early seventies like the mighty Joseph Hill. But they are nowhere to be found today. Like the spirit of the Lord is upon Joseph Hill, for the past thirty years, nothing at all could stop him from spreading his message against war, oppression, crime, discrimination, poverty, racism, corruption, and injustice.

In the year 2003, he came out with “world peace” album seeking peace worldwide and rejecting war totally. On July 25, 2004, after performing live, he granted this interview to The Voice Magazine Belgian Correspondent.

culture

Joel: I have to call you Sir Joseph Hill. Let’s rally round Jehovah’s throne. I have some few questions to ask you today.

Joseph: You are welcome. (Then he smiled)

Joel: It was in the seventies, I heard of Culture. Can you please tell what has inspired you to be in this hard music industry for all these years?

Joseph: It’s Jah (referring to God) that gives me the strength. Always feel that there is something in watch out. For myself, I love to play for the people. They are also part of my inspiration. These are what have inspired me throughout these years.

Joel: You have been singing all you life about corruption, oppression, war, poverty, discrimination, crime and so on. Were you a victim to such things in any circumstances?

Joseph: There are people I saw in comparison to various countries. Yes!yes!!yes!!! I have seen people die and not a word of justice is been said. Think of the person’s life. It is priceless. My last grief I had. There was this woman in Afghanistan, separated from the land. They treated her so bad that she and her child were eating grass.”G R A S S- grass”.(Joseph moved with sorrow spelt the word grass)

Joel: Your lyrics and beats in every song of Culture, touches and moves everyone on the road of trials and tribulations. Where do you get such wonderful rhythms and lyrics from?

Joseph: The big man that rules the earth. He is the governor.(He laughed)

Joel: You were in Sierra Leone, when the war was at its peak, with brutal activities of the rebels. Did your visit created any impact or brought a change to the suffering masses?

Joseph: Yes, my visit brought a change. When the people saw me, they don’t know what to say. They just cried and cried. You know the rebels told the government that “You should be glad that Joseph is here. If you he wasn’t here this place would be destroyed within 24 hours. Imagine. I just came back from there a few weeks ago”

Joel: I learnt that at the capital Freetown, at the guest house you lodged, there is a tree nearby, and every morning a bird came to sing, and out of the song of the bird, you composed a song from it.

Joseph: Yes’ yes!! It is true.
Joel:On July 4th, 2004, I interviewed Lucky Dube, he told me that as a friend, you are one of the best men in the music industry. How do you react to this nice compliment?
Joseph: I take is easy. That’s all.

TV: I ask the same question any reggae artist I interview. Reggae music is loved by everyone. But why is it that the music is given less attention?

Joseph: Because the truth is God’s friend. But not a lot of people are the friend of the truth.

Joel: You are following the Palestinians and Israeli conflict for a very long time and have even-even visited the Gaza strip. Who do you think is the stumbling block to this peace everyone is seeking?

Joseph; Greed, greed, greed. Because there is enough to satisfy every man’s need but never enough to satisfy no man’s greed. So greed is the stumbling block.

Joel: In one of your music, you played a song against Yasser Arafat, as the stumbling block.

Joseph: He made himself like that. He has to change his ways and the other man would change his ways. There is something called “Repentance”. When repentance meets their hearts, we shall have a beautiful world.

Joel: You successfully came out last year with the remarkable “world peace” album. What message do you still have in mind for your numerous fans worldwide?

Joseph: You know people should respect one another. To be used, abused, refused and our hearts trampled by fear and living in doubt, thinking we are living on top of the world. No, we shouldn’t live that way. We have to seek happiness, love, mutual respect, joy and justice of God around us, and peace would find its rightful place.

Joel: Thank you very much for this interview Sir Joseph Hill.

Joseph: Thanks be to Jah

The Passion of Reggae and African Music

On the radio daily in Africa, especially Ghana, was the music of artists such as John Holt, Jimmy Cliff and Desmond Decker, but the emergence of Jimmy Cliff, stole the heart of reggae lovers in Africa. From many rivers to cross, house of exile, born to win, my friends wife, synthetic world, sitting in limbo, music maker, you can get if you really want, wonderful world, beautiful people, Jimmy Cliff’s uncontrollable single hits changed Africa significantly, followed by his film ‘The Harder They Come’.

Then a group to change the reggae scene were playing as ‘The Wailers’, with Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer, the latter being the only surviving member of the wailers now. Their differences led Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer away from the group, giving rise to ‘Bob Marley and the Wailers. With scores of hit Bob Marley and Peter Tosh, inspired many African musicians, giving birth to great African reggae stars in the names of Lucky, Dube, Alpha Blondy, Majek Fashek, Ras Kimono and other white reggae stars, Ambrosie and Gentleman, aka Timann Otto.

Reggae has acted like a magnet, creating a huge impact on the global music scene. This type of music, which carries a prophetic message and spiritual lyrics, continues to influence musical genres, cultures, and societies throughout the world, contributing to the development of new counterculture movements in Europe, America, and Africa.

“Reggae in the bathroom, Reggae in the bedroom, Reggae everywhere, Reggae in jail, Reggae in church, everybody likes it,” sings Lucky Dube. In this book the writer speaks to some of the masters behind contemporary reggae and African music. “The fall of Apartheid, I know I’m part of it in some ways,” says Lucky Dube. “Definitely, my father was my biggest influence in music,” says Andrew Tosh.
