Thievery Corporation is known for bringing an eclectic mix of sounds that appeal to various tastes. In the realm of reggae music, Thievery Corporation comes heavy with added vocals of artists such as Notch, Sleepy Wonder, and even the legendary Sister Nancy. In 2011, Thievery Corporation’s Culture of Fear album introduced the voice of Ras Puma, who graced the tracks “Overstand” and “False Flag Dub” with his deep vocals and conscious lyrics.
Ras Puma has since joined forces with Archives, a project under Thievery Corporation’s ESL Music label. Also an eclectic mix of much-needed foundation reggae, the star of this heavy-hitter is undoubtedly Ras Puma. He sings tracks such as “More To Life” and “Message for the Messenger” with so much depth and fervor, one cannot help but to empathize with his passion for the subject matter about which he sings.
On Friday, August 10th, Thievery Corporation performed in front of a sold-out crowd at Colorado’s infamous Red Rocks Amphitheater. Before Ras Puma delivered a powerful performance by singing Thievery Corporation reggae-inspired classics such as “Amerimacka” and “Radio Retaliation,” he blessed Inity Weekly with the opportunity to get into the mind of a talented young messenger.
