The Taste of Consciousness creates a platform for the vanguards of Roots Reggae, the King’s Music. Each show features a variety of songs by men & women with the common aspiration of truth, justice, righteousness, harmony, balance, order and reciprocity--fundamentally constructive change through word, sound and power.
“The Bambu King” Selecta’ A.D. is a Washington D.C. native who has championed reggae music for over 15 years. He comes locked and loaded with extra clips and a musical flamethrower, ready to rain down a barrage of sonic booms on any weak heart wanting to impede the path of progress. As I-Roy would say, “Don’t check me with no lightweight stuff.” Selecta' A.D. doesn't disarm for anyone. Only the finest rock hard, roots & culture reggae will suffice. Keeping with the ever changing times, Selecta’ A.D. moves forward ever, backwards never, making this a modern Roots Reggae Groundation. Each show features up and coming talents from Jamaica, The Virgin Islands, Trinidad, Guyana, Hawaii, New Zealand and even a selection of Homegrown artists.
For any fan of Real Reggae Music: the Taste of Consciousness is Haile recommended. All Killer; No Filler.
Tune in Wednesdays from 2 to 4 pm.
