At the last snwmf .my wife and i were in the dance hall , we were by the left side of the hall ,anyway she was sitting down .when muta in all his barefoot glory,sat next to us ,he sat there taking in the dance.nuff man would walk passed,then done a double take ,you know that ,is that or is it not look .then would go up to him hand on heart bowing ,say things like ire muta izes Rastafari .This went on for sometime and he would always acknowledge everyone.But after a time you could see him nodding off ,my wife Kelly said whats wrong with these people keep trouble him ,and i thought of the tv documentary on reggae shown in the uk ,muta was talking about where reggae was comming from ect...when asked about the fact of white people being into reggae .he said there must be some sort of masochism going on !then he started to chuckle,i thought its kind of ironic .you have to admire a man who is true to what he believes in ,barefoot and all ,not shaw if he would walk around in NY in the winter like that .but his show on ire fm was good ,i can't say i go along with all he says, but that life .its nice to see him though, i remember him from the early sunsplash shows shown on uk tv back in the early 80ts, with his white patch in his dread, doing ''every time i hear the sound the sound ''

Yes, I sat near Muta myself at the festival. Also the Morgans at one point as well. That's one of the beauties of SNWMF as opposed to others, we make them feel comfortable enough to move thru the community.

As far as his comment "there must be some sort of masochism going on", that is true to a certain extent, but would be more true if referring to Rasta than reggae music as a whole.

I am there for the vibes, music, and camaraderie, not the punishment...

one person who I guess has seen muta in places where it snows, and is a person I haven't known to lie, has said that muta will walk when it's pretty cold out, but if it's too cold to walk barefoot he'll have his people carry him around. Again not sure if that's true, seems kind of out there.

Cold weather won't deter that man. You had better check your 'source' on that one Ras James.... There was a time when airlines would 'insist' that he wear shoes (and they would give him these slipper things), but now they no longer require that and the TSA folks love him.

Once, the folks at Whole Foods made him put 'slippers' on too, so now he just shops at Real Foods instead. He told me the toughest of all though was trying to trod around the 'life sea', because it is all volcanic rock heavily laced with salt.... Ouch!

like I said, i'm skeptical that he has people carry him, seems even a little out there for an artist. is he ever concerned with the cleanliness of the ground though. I know I wouldn't walk around a lot of shows, stores, etc... barefoot. Peace.

Muta shops Wheatsville Food Coop in Austin where he can go barefoot. The new Whole Foods here is the parent store to the home offices. It is massively huge and well over glammed. No one could get past the front door without shoes.

Wow. Personally, masochism a trait I've never associated w/ listening to music,
but I'm a 'nothing but the best later for the garbage' fellow. See, I'd never attach
masochism to Muta if he dug Marty Robbins. No, nevah.

bro tom ,what it was that muta found strange was that,white people would gravitate toward a music that crys of the past slavery ,what the whiteman done to the blackman ect..but the more man like muta travel the earth thay will find ,that not all hate each other, man can live together if thay want ,and not be ashamed of what thay are or who,if you feel you must live in africa then do so ,if you want to live in europe do so ,its not the world that is cursed with ignorance its man ,and the more we interact with each other,the more we will break down the walls of ignorance ,there is a long way to go ,but if you chip away it will fall.has anyone seen the said documentary, it was shown here in the usa on vh1 i think ,you would see what he said ,and could put that remark into context

Peter carry the vibe every time.

I did a radio interview years ago w/ Muta, and when he arrived I was spinning
a Tosh or two on Inter-Diplo(I think 'Mark of the Beast' wuz one), and he looked surprised, then nodded approvingly---he's the model for an articulate guest onna radio show...

Muta live by his words "It nuh good fi tan a farin country too lang" so when it the blizzards start to blow Jamdown is where he goes.

Yes, I sat near Chimino myself at the festival, I just though that was Muta. Realising that he's not barefooted, nor black, I dont feel comfortable any more so I walked away.

Heard a great interview between Muta & Don Taylor in Ja on the radio back in the 90's.
