Sierra Nevada World Music Festival 1997

Strictly Roots

The fruit of reggae, as it were, has always ripened quite nicely in the Califomia sun, and has nourished one of California's premier reggae bands, Strictly Roots. Founding member Thomas "Jahson" Darnell travelled to Jamaica in 1971, and awakened to Rastafarian consciousness. He has been involved in reggae music ever since, and has assembled an entourage of dread musicians that play to standing-room only venues all over this Coast. Reggae music has changed considerably over the last ten years and Strictly Roots has been a part of that evolution.
