Ed Roman (@specialedroman) – “Jamaica”

Award-winning Canadian musician, Ed Roman has released the music video for his latest single, “Jamaica.” The video/short film was shot during Ed’s recent visit to Oracabessa, where Ed and his wife delivered a shipment of humanitarian aid items. Clocking in at more than 5 minutes, the video release mixes music video and documentary-style footage of local musicians, dancers, artists and performers from the island, as well as a mimed performance from Ed. Parts of the video were shot just around the corner from where Bob Marley was born, grew up and is now buried, known as Nine Mile.

Ed Roman says, “Jamaica is one of those places that you cannot help but feel great oppression, see the extreme poverty but at the same time the incredible ingenuity, artistic ability and cultural connectedness that we as the Western civilization have lost a great deal of. If you say you have been to Jamaica and you spent time in a resort you really actually haven’t visited the country at all.’
