This week on the show I am proud to present The Big Takeover! They are a reggae/ska ensemble straight out of the beautiful little mountain town of New Paltz, NY where I spent four years getting an anthropology degree and singing a cappella. I spoke with the lead singer Nee Nee Rushie, originally from Jamaica, about how her experience of adjusting to life in New York impacted the music she now plays. They are set to release the record Children of the Rhythm in January and I was lucky enough to snag a song from it. Nee Nee and I discussed teaching methods in Newburgh, the struggles of adapting to high school and how music makes it all better.
