Reggae prodigy, Zion, talks about his childhood in the West Indies and the Virgin Islands donde vivio mucho tiempo without electricity or running water, how that struggle was an inspiration to write the música he writes today and how living between two religions, Christianity and Rastafarianism, made him question his identity.

We decided to do this episodio because even thought in the general sense, Zion is not considered a Latino, being from the Caribbean, he shares a lot of the same struggles and experiences Latinos face.

We want to thank Zion for this interview and for his live performance en nuestro studio. You can listen to más de su música, see behind the scenes and explore his homeland through videos on his website zionalbert.com. Don’t forget to subscribe to our newsletter for exclusive content!
