It seams like Professor surround him with what we can say the cream of the Roots reggae scene from jamaika.
But all start with a trip to the westbank where the leader of Groundation want to see the world from the Palestinian side and recorded his feeling on his iPhone. Back to Jamaica he closed up in his studio and start to put sound on his experience.
I would say this album is musically much more melodically and reggaewise than what you know from the professors Groundation The sound is so authentic you almost could think this album was recorded in the 60ies...
Message wise i think is one of the most powerful and courageous reggae album i hear since a while! Who could better talk about the Israel-Palestinian conflict than Harrison Stafford aka Professor!
