The next issue, Vol 4, looks at the effect that Jamaican music culture has had around the globe. Looking at how other cultures have borrowed from the genres of ska, reggae & dancehall and taken the messages to heart and fused them to create inspired sounds. 

The issue also promises a few surprises along the way. The next issue goes to print at the end of the month and will be available mid September.

It’s been a while, a year in fact since the last issue of Rice & Peas, but I’ve been very busy compiling interviews an info for the next issue.
Changing up the format a little I’ll be using www.thenewspaperclub.com to print a tabloid size issue that allows for a couple postersized images. 
It’s gonna be a fun one :)

Stay Tuned!!

When I was little I had a crazy strain of tropical flu that had me out cold for three days, I wasn’t able to eat and could barely keep liquids down. I remember having the most vivid dreams about devouring table after table covered with dishes of rice & peas, chicken and plantain. I was aparently chanting “rice and peas, chicken and plantain” in my delarium too. I can still to this day think of nithing nicer than a good Jamaican box lunch of rice & peas, chicken and plantain.

Vol 2 of Rice & Peas has a number of variations on rice and peas recipes shared by a wide selection of Ja men. They also share a bit on their thoughts about the changing role of Ja men in the kitchen.

Can’t wait til October when the ‘Clarks in Jamaica’ book drops. This is a must have for any Ja music fan. The book by Al Fingers is an image rich tour through that navigates Ja artists’ love affair with the shoe brand that comes out of the quaker town of Froom.

In the mean time read a bit more about it here:
