HEAR THIS: Martei Korley “Concrete Flower”

Top Shotta Ternt Singa

Most reggae fans already know Martei Korley. If you haven’t clicked on his website LargeUp then you’ve surely seen his photography, for Korley is one of the premiere image-makers focusing his lens on Jamaican livity. As if the man didn’t have enough on his plate, he also makes music. He first hipped me to this fact one evening not so long ago at Miss Lily’s and now the light & breezy tune he played for me that night is out on the internets. “Concrete Flower” tells the story of a “nice girl” living in the city who works hard and manages to stay soft & serene even when she’s mistreated. It turns out he dropped another tune called “Take Time” back in 2010. Looks like this whole music thing is more than a hobby for MK. Let’s just hope he doesn’t put his camera down.
“Softly unfolding her petals” Run that…
