The Caribbean is a melting pot of cultures, peoples, and traditions. But Jamaica is credited with the birth of a genre of music that is said to have encompassed the world, and we call that Reggae. .

While the original messengers and prophets of the sound of Reggae such as Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Dennis Brown and Garnet Silk and more are no longer with us, modern day musicians are taking on the mantle of spreading the sounds of Reggae..

The Uprising Roots Band, often noted as one of the real reggae roots bands in Jamaica, continues to spread the sounds and positive vibrations of reggae music through their songs and performances all over the world. .

The band is readying to release their debut album later this year, something that the entire Uprising Roots Band family is excited about. From their East Kingston studio, The Uprising Roots Band has released three singles which are enjoying regular rotation in reggae-loving regions of the Caribbean, Europe and North America. The singles, Brightest Light, Skyfiya, and Know Yourself are shining examples of what the band is all about. .

A five-piece-Rastafarian outfit, the band remains true to their love of music – which dummer and lead vocalist, Rashawn 'Blackush' McAnuff says is an integral part of their formula for success..

“Everybody in the band loves music. Just the sounds that come out of the instruments and the way we, as a group, can make that work and make those sounds into music. That for us is what everything is all about,” McAnuff says..

The Uprising Roots Band is a complement of a talented set of musicians, who are really very much in love with the many ways they can please the ear, uplift the mind, and soothe the soul with their music and creativity, which is what McAnuff thinks makes their music “real and true reggae”..

It is true that they effortlessly channel a remarkable kind of energy and meld together instruments and vocals to stamp their own style on whatever project they undertake and this makes their music especially memorable, and will continue to use as they spread the sounds of reggae with future releases.

Bruk Pocket Jamaican

"Recently, this Jamaican won the 10 million special lottery for a dollar. As soon as the office of the Lottery Corporation was open on the following day, he was there to collect his winnings.

Graciously, he presented his winning ticket to the clerk and in his best English uttered his request "Me cum fi collect the 10 millian dallars, si me ticket ya".

After reviewing and checking the ticket with his manager, the clerk returned and requested on how he would like his payments. The Jamaican replied "Mi wan all a de moni now". "Unfortunately, Sir" the nervous clerk responded, "The procedures are that we can only give you one million now and the balance equally over the next 20 years".

Furious and agitated, the Jamaican asked for the manager, who re-iterated "Sir, my assistant is correct, it is the regulation of the corporation that we initially pay you one million dollars now with the balance paid to you equally over the next 20 years".

Outraged, the Jamaican slammed his hand on the desk and shouted in anger, "Oonu tek me fi idiat, me wan all a de moni now or oonu gi me bak me rass dallar!!"
