Red, Gold, and Green – Kabaka Pyramid & Damian Marley

For Kabaka Pyramid and Damian “Jr Gong” Marley it was worthy enough to unite their
musical synergy to highlight the significance of the colours to Rastafari tradition and Reggae
music.

Set to release July 22nd, Red, Gold & Green is brimming with the nuanced context often
missing from the message. This missing context is remarkably packed into immaculate
verses for which both artists are well known.

Not only is Damian Marley featured, but he is also the producer of this single. Kabaka’s
debut album Kontraband was met with critical acclaim and was also produced by Damian.
The result of collaboration between Damian and Kabaka, as evidenced by records like
Kontraband gives listeners the best of lyrics, musicality, and melodies.

While this dynamic duo has linked up on other tracks and productions, this one is special in
its focus on a mission and meaning. It delivers a poignant and important message about
authenticity and reminds us of the identity of the tradition. While the order is tall, and the goal
of the authors is lofty, this track delivers in its approach. It educates without confounding;
it elaborates without meandering but most commendable is that it does not spare the often
missing connections between cultures.
