MUZIK TREE REGGAE BOOKS

Our good friend Ray Hurford from East-London has (re)started to sell (a set of) reggae books from his own publishing house Muzik Tree. To give him as much as support as we can, and thus we’ve created and host the ‘Muzik Tree Reggae Books’ page to enable our visitors of our website and reggae fans in general to directly purchase one or more of his books. Check HERE and pick your choice!

The Beginnings

In 1986 – Muzik Tree was set up it was to be reggae music’s first book publishing house. The idea came from Tero Kaski in Finland. He said that “The major book publishers will never be interested in reggae music, the only way that the story of reggae music is to be told – is by people like us – reggae fans.”

Tero had already published ‘Reggae Inna Dance Hall’ in 1984 – which covered the emergence of Volcano Hi-Power owned by Henry ‘Junjo’ Lawes. This highly acclaimed book is now available as ‘Volcano Re-Visited’. In 1987 the first book on Muzik Tree was published – ‘More Axe’.

By now Muzik Tree’s catalog includes about 30 titles.
