Dub Poetry

Using the linguistic musicality of Jamaican patois, these poets examine history, politics and social structures as they weave their words over supple reggae riddims. Key artists from the 1980s onward impart folk wisdom and insightful rhetoric, some in stark a cappella settings and others amid dub music's pattering congas and ghostly rippling echoes.
