Zara McFarlane's dream festival: Koffee and herbal tea
The British jazz singer takes us to Jamaica for a lineup where Steam Down, Yola and Moses Boyd jam next to a waterfallIt would have to be in Jamaica, but not on the beach as people might expect. I’m thinking of a hillside, country spot, with a winding river you can walk in, green trees and a little waterfall nearby. It’s partly imaginary but I have been to a specific place in Jamaica like this, with a secluded river you could cross by stones, and drooping trees. It wouldn’t be a festival for tens of thousands – maybe one or two thousand people, so not Glastonbury-sized. More like a retreat. Continue reading...
Buju Banton: Upside Down 2020 review – as good as he's ever been
(Roc Nation/Gargamel)The controversial reggae star returns with a majestic howl of rage and an inspired mix of dancehall, roots and rockBuju Banton is the 90s Bob Marley in Jamaica. In the UK, it feels necessary to recall his miserably homophobic single Boom Bye Bye, which cast a poisonous pall over his nascent international career in 1992. Banton wrote it aged 15, half the age Eric Clapton was when he ranted about “keeping Britain white”. But we don’t read about Clapton’s racist drivel in every review and interview. Adult Clapton was given a pass that teenage Banton never got. White privilege? Perhaps.Yet although Banton renounced homophobia, and has now deleted the song from his catalogue, he was still performing it in 2007. And while there are dozens of Buju lyrics on Genius, only one has over 100,000 views. Its squalid allure endures. It shadows his later, conscious work. Continue reading...
'Every black man have to fight': Buju Banton on prison and liberation
Jamaica’s reggae megastar received a hero’s welcome when he came home after seven years in a US jail. ‘No guts, no glory – that’s my genesis,’ he says in a rare interview At the end of 2018, the reggae star Buju Banton returned to Jamaica after almost seven years in a US prison, and Norman Manley international airport was mobbed. His flight was delayed, the chants of “We want Buju” ramped up, then after a brief prayer huddle in the customs area, he pushed into the arrivals hall to pandemonium. It took a phalanx of hi-vis-wearing airport workers to hustle him through to the waiting police motorcade, a task not helped by the workers’ attempts to get selfies with their charge.It was a hero’s welcome because, despite being convicted in the US of intention to distribute cocaine, Banton is a Jamaican hero. For his first post-prison concert, at Kingston’s National Stadium, about 30,000 people were packed in with many more enjoying it from outside.

'It was heartbreaking': the day Bob Marley played Crystal Palace
40 years ago this week, Bob Marley played in Crystal Palace park, debuting Redemption Song and enchanting the crowd – but signs of his decline were already thereWhat turned out to be the last Garden Party in Crystal Palace, on 7 June 1980, had already been pretty memorable. Joe Jackson was booed off stage after swearing at the audience before several people fell into the lake when a branch broke off a tree. But like most in the crowd that day 40 years ago, a teenage Rob Baker had come to see one act: Bob Marley and the Wailers.“For the last song, the sun came out,” says Baker, who travelled from his home in Salisbury to south London for the concert. “And he came back on stage to play Redemption Song with just an acoustic guitar. It was a very special moment because no one had heard it before.” Continue reading...
