@DelhiSultanate Uses Reggae For Political Activism In India


While your favourite Artist may be using Reggae/Dancehall creatively (or stupidly) in Jamaica, the influence of the Music Culture continues to affect many others worldwide. One person in particular is Taru Dalmia a.k.a. “Delhi Sultanate” of New Delhi, India, as he uses not only Reggae, but the Sound System Culture to channel his Political Activism. While India is under the rule of the Hindu Nationalist Government lead by Narendra Modi (Bharatiya Janata Party), Taru alleges that free speech is being threatened under his rule, and using his talents will assist the many protests that are being held in many Universities across the nation. Armed with classic singles, and Dub Plates from the likes of Toots Hibbert, Barrington Levy, and Anthony B, he hopes that his assistance in the fight will not be in vain.

Taru is also a member of The Ska Vengers, a live Band that blends Dub, Pop, Ska, Jazz, Rap, and Punk to deliver a new sound. Below is a clip from the Al Jazeera Network where we look into Taru’s journey, and the challenges he has faced so far. We also feature some of the singles that could spark protests, and some that speak against the Jamaican Government.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Frankie Paul – Sara (1987) (R.I.P. Jamaican Stevie Wonder)


Today’s Oldies Sunday pays respect to one of Jamaica’s greatest Vocalists, the one they called the “Jamaican Stevie Wonder“, the late Frankie “Dancehall” Paul. The Singer recently passed away after battling a long ailment, and the news sent shock waves all over the world. Having been born blind, Frankie showed many that you can still be great no matter your circumstance. Possessing a love for singing, he impressed Recording Artist Stevie Wonder during a visit to his school in Jamaica, and was inspired to pursue a Music career. Releasing multiple singles and Albums over the years, Frankie went on to be an influence for many of the Dancehall/Reggae Vocalists that followed. Having worked with almost every Producer and Record Label in Jamaica, Frankie Paul was a household name and ultimately a Legend.

As a part of keeping his spirit alive, we present to you “Sara”, his 1987 hit which was a cover of US Rock Band Starship’s single. The track was produced by King Jammy for his Jammys Label and was a part of Paul’s 1987 “Live And Love” Album.

Walk Good, Frankie Paul!
