Sierra Nevada World Music Festival 1997

Root Awakening

Root Awakening's bassist Herb Daly visited Jamaica in the seventies as a guitarist and teacher, and soon became a hapless dub addict. Later, he hooked up with California reggae band Roots of Creation, touring the West. He helped found the popular reggae ensemble the Rastafarians. Teaming up with other reggae fanatics, he then founded Root Awakening, which enjoys a large following in California. Caribbean-born Cedric Angila has helped Root Awakening find a sound that combines other island beats such as salsa, soca, and meringue.
