Ras Leon Burke

Fans of the Underground Roots Syndicate from Santa Barbara’s Rasta ’90s will recognize the one and only Ras Leon Burke, lead singer with the Syndicate. He returned to Jamaica a decade or so ago and started Jahhiya Travel Service, and Indy publisher Joe Cole met up with him on a recent visit to Fern Gully just outside Ocho Rios. He’s still making music and has a new CD, Blazing Hits Volume II, which became the roots soundtrack to their island treks. Irie vibe, mon.
