Tydal Kamau X King MAS – Protection
Jamaican Reggae: “Made in Costa Rica”.
In these times when crime and violence run rampant in the streets of Kingston (JA) as well as Boston (USA) a duo of roots Reggae warriors have arisen to inspire the masses to walk with “Protection”
About a year ago, a fateful meeting took place in San Jose, Costa Rica. In commemoration of the very first official release from Southwood Records entitled “Made in Costa Rica”, DJ Jeren & DJ Kendo brought in a squadron of gifted vocalists, songwriters, & musicians to support their flagship artist Mar Villareal as they prepared to release her debut album. Among the chosen few was Kingston (JA) based Tydal Kamau as well as Boston (USA) based King MAS of the Bantu Nation Movement.
From the stage to the studio the creative chemistry continued! As more and more reasoning took place amongst the collective the message became clear and the “musical Obeah man”, with guitar in hand, began to chant a melody. Tydal quickly responded with his rapid fire delivery accompanied by the skillful pianist & producer Rekesh Dukaloo as the rest of the Southwood Records joined in the creative energy. Once the record was fully recorded, the masterful hands of Wadadah II of D.O.V.E. Muzik (Chicago) sealed up the heavy vibration with a potent element of Dub for emphasis this crucial collaboration, which tackles one of the many social issues being faced around the world today. The ominous overtones are well balanced with positive lyrics and an uplifting message for roots Reggae lovers across the globe! Fulljoy these heartical vibrations featuring the voices of two Jamaicans but “Made In Costa Rica”.
