ABOUT DUB POETRY

Dub Poetry finds its’ roots in the dance halls of Jamaica, West Indies where poets would chant their rhymes over the B side dub versions of records. Dub Poetry is quite possibly the final frontier in the music world where artists make poignant social statements, devoid of commercial affectation. The original Dub Poet is Jamaican Oku Onuora who was born Orlando Wong.

Dub Poet ANTON is originally from Trinidad and Tobago where he has also practiced the art form Rapso. Similar to Dub Poetry in message, Rapso poets chant over Calypso based rhythms, whereas Dub Poetry has Reggae rhythms at the core. Learn more here or watch video below:
