Joseph Hill, Culture interview, West Indian World Newspaper, 1982

Yesterday I wrote a bit on Joseph “Culture” Hill and his son Kenyatta. Here’s an awesome, rare interview with Joseph Hill in 1982 I just found on the midnightraver blog!

Give thanks to MIDNIGHT RAVER’S Peter van Arnhem for this most crucial contribution.

The article finds Joseph Hill in London in September 1982. Joseph talks about the split in the group, about the death of Bob Marley, about the song “Tribute to the O.M.” (album Lion Rock) and about Rasta.

After the album Lion Rock 4 years went by before Joseph Hill reunited with original members Kenneth Dayes and Albert Walker and recorded the album Çulture in Culture.

Kenyatta Hill – Afrikan (Official Music Video 2014)

Kenyatta Hill is the son of the late legendary Jamaican roots reggae singer Joseph “Culture” Hill, who is known primarily for his work with the band Culture in the 70s and 80s. This is one of my favourite tracks off Kenyatta’s new LP “Riddim of Life”. His voice resembles his father’s, who must have been a huge influence on him, as he was and still is to so many people. All in all, a great new artist with a powerful message in his music. The video, shot in Jamaica, is very well made and is full of beautiful cultural scenes. from Kenyatta singing on the beach to food, music, sports, art, nature and, of course, the people.
