Red, Gold, Green and Blue: when Jamaica sings the blues

Trojan Jamaica presents their first compilation, where several Jamaicain artists cover american blues classics.

Founded by Zak Starkey and musician and producer Sshh Liguz, Trojan Jamaica record label releases its first compilation. The release relies on a strong concept: several generations of Jamaican artists reinterpret american classic blues songs.

The compilation is thus intrinsically panafrican, drawing a bridge between musics from different diasporas of the African continent. It features a cover of the worldwide classic “I Put a Spell On You” by Mykal Rosa and an interpretation of “Man of the World” by legendary Toot and the Maytals among other gems.

Red, Gold, Green and Blue, out on July 12th. Pre-order it here.
