Black Roots Releases Their New Track Nothing In The Larder

Black Roots Nothing in the larder

Food poverty has become one of the starkest economic realities affecting vulnerable communities in the richest and most powerful democracies since the start of this century. And it is set to get worse, not least because we are dealing with a worldwide pandemic that has no clear end date. Economic hardship and poverty are on the rise.

Footage of interviews with families who cannot afford to put food on the table to feed their children, of people going to food banks and long line of cars (in the USA for example) queueing up to collect food parcels, and of experts discussing how inequality is being fuelled by economic policies designed to protect the interests of and benefit the few over the many, are all too common.

We are used to seeing the images of famines on our screens and the devastating effects they have in the poorest countries in the world but what we are seeing now in the so called ‘developed world’ is unprecedented. Benefits are being cut, poverty is increasing and   working parents do not earn enough to see them through from pay day to pay day.  Where will all this end?

This song, the title track from the forthcoming album that releases on 4th June 2021, highlights this growing problem, but it also acknowledges that there needs to be greater understanding, more wisdom and knowledge in the world if there is going to be real change.

The sound of Reggae is widely recognised because of its acoustically formed bass and drum downbeat, and its offbeat rhythm section. With such a diversity in style it is also considered complex enough to attract progressively minded musicians. A music that has a strong association with dance covering a variety of styles while also offering a background beat for those sharing Biblical chants of Zion. It is hard to ignore Reggae’s influence and how it interacts with our day-to-day lives. Shared as background music for films and advertising driving its heavy bass lines literally felt wherever rock and pop are played. Reggae has an affinity with mainstream British pop; recognised within the hip-hop culture and considered “cool” by those with no connection to Jamaica. As lovers of reggae my aim is to build a community of reggae followers that can share thoughts, news, events as listeners, artists, DJ’s and hosts.
