BUJU BANTON

Before the Dawn

2010-12-11

For twenty-some years, Jamaican musician, Buju Banton (real name Mark Myrie) has made socially-conscious music from his home town of Kingston. However, for the past year, he has been incarcerated in Florida on drug conspiracy charges. Currently out on bond after a mistrial and having served almost a year, he is due to be re-tried in February 2011. That hasn't stopped him. His latest release, "Before the Dawn", continues his legacy of making inspiring reggae music and has been nominated for a Grammy. Want to keep up on his case? Want to join the "Free Buju" campaign?
