Ras Leon Takes Jahhiya even Hiya!

7:20 PM PST on January 5, 2008


Los Angeles TACO would like to congratulate our good friend and roots hero Ras Leon on his feature in the new issue of High Times. Those who skanked and mashed it up back in the day might remember Leon's astonishing shows in Southern Cali leading the Santa Barbara-based group Underground Roots Syndicate.

If you love reggae music, if you love dancehall, if you love roots music with a positive, uplifting message, Leon's Jahhiya Records is the reggae label to watch in 2008 and beyond. Check out the compilations Blazing Hits 1 & 2, featuring legends like Anthony B, Yami Bolo, Tony Rebel, Everton Blender, and be introduced to some of reggae's best emerging talents like Mr. Beenie and Emanuel Stain. The music is fresh, energizing, and especially rare for most reggae compilations, flawless!

Lots of love to Jahhiya Records and Ras Leon, check the tunes out at, get the 2 albums at Jahhiya's MP3 Store and keep in touch with L.A. TACO and Jahhiya's Myspace page for more.
