Once you get to Kingston, Inna Di Yard is one of the first things to see in town for those who appreciate real roots reggae.
Any taxi driver here knows where that is – big yard in front of Chinna Smith’s House where every day you can find reggae veterans together with young artists impovising from dusk till down.
Real roots vibe, small shop of rare vinyl, only ital food served – here, in this yard, you may feel the true spirit of rural Jamaica.
Cedrick Myton – the vocalist of legendary Congos – is one of the Inna Di Yard regular participants, and this song called “Youthman” is like a little anthem for the reggae gathering taken place here almost everyday.
