Ritmos Negros

Jun 27, 2021

You are now listening to Ritmos Negros! Happy Pride Month! In celebration of the LGBTQ+ community, we speak with Mista Majah P, aka The Maverick! Born in Kingston, Jamaica, he is the first reggae artist to record and release an entire album of pro-LGBTQ songs! Both reggae and dancehall (aka faster reggae) have historically perpetuated homophobic lyrics due to anti-gay laws in Jamaica. Mista shares insight into LGBTQ+ lives in Jamaica and the connection to reggae.
