In this episode we have another conversation with Oggie Wisdom Lauer, a musician and bandleader from Marburg, Hesse, Germany.
He talks about the kind of music he makes as a musician and bandleader of the Rasing Fire Reggae Band from Marburg. He says, "Reggae music breaks boundaries. We are all God's children, we are fighting to end injustice. We want justice for all, we don't want discrimination based on race, class, religion or region!".We preach about love! This is the music we make as Raising Fire Reggae Band!
