The Greatest Living Afro Caribbean Poet Benjamin Zephaniah – writes a Poem for One Love Festival

We are honoured The Greatest Living Afro Caribbean Poet Benjamin Zephaniah who is performing with his Revolutionary Minds Band at this years Festival – wrote a very special poem for us called ‘Loved Up’ …

We dance to mighty words,
We speak to righteous riddims,
We dub it hard.
We get up united,
We stand up undivided,
Like lions in zion
We are fearless wise eyes.
We are peacemaking rockers,
Dancing on grass
Loving under trees,
As creation intended.
How we love sky,
How we love each other,
Drum love
Bass love,
The vibes, the vibes
How sweet thou art.
And so, we who are gathered here
Skanking top ranking under European skies,
Know that we who have gathered here
Are joined up riddimwise.
Let our minds and bodies be free
And let us be moved by our unity.
This is the dread magic operating,
This is the One Love happening.
Benjamin Zephaniah ©

The Clash and its Reggae Connection:

When The Clash were recording their debut album in February 1977, they were asked to come up with an extra track. As big reggae fans, their answer was to cover Police & Thieves, a contemporary club hit by Jamaican singer Junior Murvin. The Clash gave the song their own edgy rock makeover, a move that kick-started Punk’s lasting connection with militant black music, and opened up the band’s music to a strong reggae influence.

Bob Marley, Joe Strummer and the Punky Reggae Party

Marley’s single Punk Reggae Party put a name to an underground phenomenon – the coming together of the Punks and the Rastas at the height of 70s social unrest. That era may be over, but the Punky reggae spirit still lives and breathes with Strummerville at Glastonbury Festival and now One Love Festival

Originally a Scratch production sung by Junior Murvin, the track’s cynical realism had helped it become a Punk anthem. At first listen, Bob and Scratch were startled by Joe Strummer’s harsh bark, compared to Murvin’s mellifluous falsetto. “It is different, but me like ’ow ’im feel it,” was Marley’s verdict, though. He liked the link between the two tribes of alienated,  youth – Punks and Rastafari. “Punks are outcasts from society. So are the Rastas. So they are bound to defend what we defend,” Marley concluded. Shortly thereafter,  named an underground social phenomenon
