King Django

If you're a fan of Jewish reggae or ska, chances are you'll already have come across multi-talented musician King Django.

The New Jersey-based performer – who also owns the label Stubborn Records – has been making music since the mid-80s, and explored his Jewish background on the 1998 album Roots and Culture.

He's returned to more traditional roots reggae for his latest album, Roots Tonic. The album's not out until later in the year, but we've had a sneak preview and we're very impressed.

Roots Tonic features 12 tracks, ranging from the upbeat likes of No Trial, Wayfarer's Prayer It's All Over through to such moody instrumentals as Zion Gates.

It's a must for reggae fans, and it's a great opportunity to hear what Django gets up to when he's not recording Jewish music. Speaking of which, he's currently recording a follow-up to Roots and Culture, which should be out either later this year or early 2006.
