New release from Pentateutch Movement
United by a desire to create a better reality for future generations, Pentateuch Movement is moving reggae forward by drawing from African traditionsand foundation reggae music.
With the release of “CRIME,” the first single from their newalbum “CHAPTER XVIII,” the Pentateuch Movement hope to shed light on povertyand injustice in their homeland. Drawn from the headlines, “Crime” is aresponse to the British government’s proposal to provide millions of dollars toconstruct a prison complex in Jamaica.
Their collective influences include a roster of classicreggae, R&B and gospel artists: Burning Spear, Leroy “Horsemouth” Wallace,Sly Dunbar, Shirley Caesar, the Wailers, Sam Cooke, Nina Simone and OtisRedding. Much inspiration also comes from their contemporaries: Midnite, Roots Uprising, Kendrick Lamar and Raging Fyah, Protoje, Chronixx, and Jesse Royal.
