Remarks Tony Rebel once again brings to fans of reggae and dancehall the premier roots festival to celebrate its eleventh anniversary. An unsurpassed entertainer with legendary status and firm Rastafarian beliefs, Rebel was at the helm of the cultural revolution seen in the 1990s, and has consistently been at the vanguard of virtually all developments in reggae, including the union of roots and dancehall which he helped to effect. Rebel Salute was developed as a conscious alternative to the violence and slackness that plagued the scene, and was responsible in large part for returning dancehall to its positive roots. This remains true today, as drugs, alcohol, and meat are banned at the festival, and the pride of the culture is proclaimed and sustained through the progressive messages of the artistes. The festival of 2004, captured on this release, featured a stellar lineup, including Junior Byles, The Jays, Culture, Mighty Diamonds, John Holt, and Dwight Pinkey.
