The Excyclopedia of Reggae Musicians
Part I : Dee-Jays
Researched and compiled by
My own interest in reggae music started in the beginning of 90s,
trying to listen to Aswad, Maxi Priest and Shinehead. These
artists were often heard on the radio and it was easy to get
their records and CDs in the shops here in Tokyo. Until then Bob
Marley had been the only person accepted as reggae musician in
Japan, so their appearance was very exciting for me. Every summer
many musicians come to Japan to appear on stage and over 50
thousand people enjoy it in Tokyo.
