Presented by Consequence of Sound and Voice Boxx Studios, Rootsland is a weekly docuseries podcast that explores the story of two friends who take a musical and spiritual journey from the suburbs of Long Island to the streets of Kingston, Jamaica. Today, host Henry “K” Karyo continues Season 1: “Reggae, Junkie, Jew” with another exciting chapter.
In Chapter 4: “Ghetto Stays in the Mind”, Henry meets Mrs. Rita Marley, his new boss at Tuff Gong Music, a magical melting pot of unsung heroes, reggae legends, and righteous Rastafarians. Reality hits, however, when Bob Andy takes Henry into the “garrison,” where he sees the lasting damage caused by a bloody proxy war fought on the streets of Kingston in the 70’s between the CIA and KGB.
