Irie Magazine Issue #04.01

Irie Magazine’s January 2016 World Reggae edition of IRIE is here and it’s a comic book edition featuring Drew McIntosh of Dread & Alive® and the Jamaican Maroons of Accompong. This January issue introduces fans to Drew McIntosh, the protagonist of Dread & Alive and includes an exclusive interview with the dreadlocked hero.

In our ROOTS feature, we shine a major spotlight on Cudjoe Day, the annual celebration held on January 6 to commemorate the birth of Captain Cudjoe and his victory over the British in the first Maroon War. Our ROCK feature explores the fifteen-article peace treaty signed by Captain Cudjoe of the Leeward Maroons and the British (Colonel John Guthrie and Captain Francis Sadler) which not only granted the Maroons of Jamaica 1,500 acres of land and their freedom but also autonomy.

And if that weren’t enough, we’ve included an exclusive Irie Trax from our family, Natti Love Joys, for your personal listening pleasure!

Remember to keep it ROOTS, ROCK, REGGAE and RESPECT, Mon!
