Burning Spear

For more than 35 years, Burning Spear’s music—thus, his life—has inspired people on numerous continents. Since the beginning, his songs have implored listeners to fight oppression in all its forms, to work at improving their own condition and to consider the social impact of their actions.

Burning Spear’s link is a pure one in 2005. Unfettered by someone else’s record company, still linked to the roots of reggae and to the ideals of its forefathers, OUR MUSIC points to a better world for those who are oppressed, and for those who simply believe a better world is possible.

“Music,” Burning Spear maintains, “is a very important thing. We have to remember that no force is stronger than the music.”
