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.
For the first generation of Jamaicans to grow up listening to reggae music, these songs weren’t just jams for a Saturday night of dancing — they were a guidebook for life. The music was inspiring an entire nation with its timeless messages of love, inclusion, and acceptance. In Chapter 6: “Unchained”, Henry discovers that not everyone in Kingston got the memo.
