Kabaka Pyramid — aka Keron Salmon of Kingston, Jamaica’s — is a talented reggae musician and producer who draws heavily on his time as a rapper in the underground music scene. Kabaka, whose name references his desire for longevity in music and deep connection to Kemetic roots, aims for a higher consciousness and spirituality in his music, with the goal of steering future generations towards harmony and unity. The group stopped by the BTRhouse in Austin on a rainy morning to share some special, acoustic renditions of their songs on our front porch.
Featured song: “Well Done”
Special thanks to Southern Tier Brewing Company for sponsoring the BTRhouse sessions.
