Mein ganz persönlicher Favorit vom Album Inna de Yard. Die Review dazu findet ihr übrigens drüben im ZoomLab!
„Inna de Yard“ is the name of a collective of forgotten legends and young musicians from Jamaica, who decided to bring back the soul of their musical culture, the one which makes their island internationaly renowned.“© Chapter Two Records, 2019
In der offiziellen Singleinfo zur „Malcolm X“ Auskopplung von und mit Winston McAnuff heißt es:
„The latest track and single from highly anticipated INNA DE YARD album and documentary film project is a powerful tribute to the black American leader. Originally written by Winston McAnuff in the mid 70’s, it was promptly turned it into a popular hit by rising star of the time, Dennis Brown.© Chapter Two Records, 2019
Winston delivers a sharp and fiery version supported by an ensemble of Nyabinghi percussion, Franklyn Waul on the piano and Fixi on the accordion. Additional backing vocals add to the intensity of a track with a clear political dimension, reminding us that Jamaica carries a deep history of slavery and emancipation.
The video combines the beautiful setting of the Inna De Yard terrace in Stony Hill, Jamaica alongside various shots of Winston’s town and church that his own father built. Like all tracks on the album, Rastafari is sewn into the sonic seams, reminding us of Jamaica’s vast contribution to popular music around the globe.
Malcolm X is part of a brand new and self titled album by Inna De Yard, to be released on April 12th alongside a feature length documentary called ‚Soul of Jamaica‘ directed by Oscar nominated Peter Webber and features the full Inna De Yard family.“
