Rwandan reggae spreads musical message of peace – CNN.com

Kigali, Rwanda (CNN) — Rwanda’s not a nation typically recognized for its music scene. But if you spend a little time there you’ll find a selection of talented musicians ready to emerge.

One of the country’s up-and-coming bands, Jah Doves, offer listeners modern-day reggae mixed with traditional Rwandan beats.

The six-man band is especially known for its bold lyrics. Every song has a meaning that conveys a positive message. It’s the reason they call themselves Jah Doves. Doves symbolize peace and harmony, both traits the band wants to emulate in their song writing.
