Riddim #86 got the travel bug

Under the motto “Destination Jamaica” a group of authors gathered for the recent Riddim magazine to leave the beaten tracks and discover adventure outside the popular spots and resorts. Ellen Koehlings and Pete Lilly hiked the island’s highest mountain, the Blue Mountain Peak, and Mel Cooke sunbathed at gems from Negril to Portland. Together with Alex “Drummie”Domhoever I report from a journey to the musical heart of Kingston, the Trenchtown area, where instrumentalists from all over the world join forces for “Musicians without boarders”, a project in which children in volatile communities receive free musical training. Also drummer Alex tought youths in Bob Marley’s legendary Culture Yard and shares his exciting experience. Without a plane ticket at hand, we still take you on musical journeys with news from Swiss Cali P and German Patrice, who share their thoughts and “iThoughts”. For the cover story Damian Marley reveals yet unknown stories on his upcoming record “Stony Hill”. Edition 86 is in stores now. Subscriptions are available online on riddim.de
