Mutabaruka

Dub poet Mutabaruka outside his shop in Kingston.

This was shot this several years back for RAS records I don’t remember if it was for a CD or promotional material. Last year at the Norman Manley Airport in Kingston while waiting for my flight I went into the book store, as I usually do and was surprised to see this image as the cover photo of Muta’s latest book of poetry. If anyone out here has ever spoken to Muta you know he is a very interesting and outspoken person. His radio show, The Cutting Edge, was a big hit in Jamaica, always discussing diverse and controversial topics, was great to listen to. Also just released in Jamaica is the vinyl version of Dub It!, the dub LP of Check It!, Muta’s first LP.
