The father and originator of the term “Dub Poetry”, Oku Onuora is the most charismatic and passionate articulator of the sufferah’s grief and outrage. He incants his red-hot declamations while the music pulses with its own emotive intent. “Reflection In Red” was Oku Onuora’s first musical release and first ever dub poem on record. Recorded at Harry J studio and first released in 1979 on Bob Marley’s 56 Hope Road label, the poem expresses Oku Onuora’s scepticism over the peace truce between Kingston’s political rival gangs of the late 70s. Look out for this reissue dropping soon and distributed by TRS. “An de beat well red.”
