► Nelson Mandela Reggae Tribute Mix

shockleewebpic_mandelareggaemixSince Nelson Mandela’s passing on December 5, 2013, there have been several tribute mixes floating around the web paying their respects. This particular mix though, takes a different approach by featuring strictly reggae tunes, an effort that highlights the Mandela’s impact throughout the African diaspora.

The mostly throwback selection was put together by King Kong Disko out of Hamburg who adds:

We decided to do a little theme mix to honor this big man and his historical achievements. This mix entirely consists of classic Reggae tunes commenting on the life and work of Nelson Mandela. Many of those tunes are from back in the 1980s, when Mandela was still imprisoned. This also makes the music featured here a very interesting document of contemporary history. This mix gives you a very good impression of how Caribbean artists have always shown a very deep interest in the political struggle of the people of the African continent.
